it was amazing
bookshelves: general-non-fiction, productivity

I agree with the basic premise, being an academic myself (in computer science, no less), and having studied many of the same tech examples mentioned in this book. My own PhD advisor said himself that his ideas never came from isolation, they came from going out into the world and talking to other people! This book has crystalized some ideas that I had only a vague sense of before. Given a clear definition, I can now act on these ideas directly in my own life, and I look forward to seeing the results in the future.
