The Importance Of Cross Referencing
Philosopher John Locke understood the importance of cross-referencing as early on as 1652, when he began developing an elaborate system for indexing the content of his commonplace book, essentially a scrapbook of interesting thoughts and findings. Such books formed his repository of ideas and hunches, maturing and waiting to be connected to new ideas.
On an organizational level, the key to innovation and inspiration is a network that allows hunches to mature, scatter and combine with others openly.
Deep thinker. Like talking about the world, religion and politics.
