The Genius of Multipliers

I have a huge backlog of The New Yorker at home and just before throwing away one from May I glanced through the table of contents to see if there were any articles written by people I have read before. Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point and Blink was one of those listed so I sat down to read his article “In the Air“.

One of the most interesting parts to this essay is the story of Intellectual Ventures, an organization that pretty much brainstorms good ideas that they then roll into patents and inventions. There’s really more to it than that, but you’ll have to read the entire article if you are interested.

I have some friends in ministry that will find this essay fascinating – they are innovators in ministry. Me? Well, I have a lot to chew on with regard to biblical interpretation. I know that’s not the direction most people will take after reading Gladwell’s essay, but I’m weird like that.
