From the Harrow Report come a nice thought:
In my opinion, the real magic [of innovation] will indeed come from these intersections,” as scientists and engineers from formally disparate fields come together and develop new questions and totally new ideas, sometimes getting “ah ha!” insights into how to do today’s things better, and how to do new things that were only yesterday firmly in the realms of our imagination. This mixing and mining of previously stovepiped ideas and knowledge will be the catalyst that opens our collective eyes to fascinating new visions.
I very much agree with what Jeffrey Harrow says. That is why reading and interacting with people who can help provide “short-cuts” to different worlds is so important.
