I couldn't be there in person, but at least I can be there in spirit.
So I downloaded one of Hugh's Freebies on his blog and made a little sketch on the Blank-Canvas of the Intel/Gapingvoid processor.
That's human potential right there. It's completely unpredictable, and is often silent for long periods of time. But then, suddenly someone manages to put the piece together, and a completely new way of thinking emerges.
That's Darwin publishing 'The Origin of Species', or Einstein penning down E=mc2, or Wikipedia discovering the wisdom of crowds, or Craigslist tapping into local efficiency, or Apple effectively creating a mainstream market for tablets.
So I ask, what breakthrough are you going to make in this lifetime?
