TED Talk Tuesday #28: Where good ideas come from

Watching TED Talks is a popular pastime at CN&CO. We visit TED.com regularly to clear our heads, have a laugh or get inspired. TED Talks open our minds, spark new ways of thinking and can lead to some very interesting conversations. Each week we pick a favourite and publish it on a Tuesday, because we like how “TED Talk Tuesday” sounds. This week’s talk was selected by CN&CO word-nerd Colin Ford. Here’s why he chose it:

There are some brilliant insights in this TED Talk about the iterative nature of aha moments, inspiration and innovation. Steven Johnson talks about coffee houses as places where ideas go to have sex. And that’s just the start!

Colin is our resident wordsmith. He can write absolutely anything and loves to read, too. He even has his own book club.
