This web page is my desktop as I explore ideas that are interesting to me. I keep very few (if any) notes on
these subjects in written form.
I periodically archive these pages to protect against a situation where information might be lost.
If an author of one of the texts I have quoted from thinks that I am unfairly reproducing his or her intellectual
property, let me know, and I will replace the quotations with summaries. You might want to consider that the quotations showcase
your work and most examples of publicity lead to increased sales. It is my opinion that reproduction of intellectual property
is in compliance with the 1976 US Copyright Act.
Notice of originality:
An attempt has been made to clearly define which portions of work posted on this web site are original and which
are the intellectual property of others. Due to the large amount of work posted, errors might exist in this attempt at clear
definition. My thinking style is that of a synthesist, and I like to combine ideas taken from others. It is safe to assume
that portions of my original works are borrowed, and hopefully correctly identified as such, from others. Errors brought to
my attention (spelling or otherwise) serve to improve the experience of those who spend time here.
Perhaps you don't agree with my ideas. No matter. Why don't we explore together?
We are all salesmen every day of our lives. We are selling our ideas, our
plans, our enthusiasms to those with whom we come in contact.
Charles Schwab (1862 - 1939)
Skilled 'idea people' tend to be very possessive about ideas; not that they want to hoard them or keep others
from having them - quite the contrary. They want to make sure they don't get away. Consequently, they typically have some
kind of a personal system that enables them to capture fleeting ideas when they first appear... very few of the most productive
thinkers around us just rely on their memories to keep ideas from escaping. - Practical Intelligence, Albrecht, p.191
