Internet pundit Tim O’Reilly said inventors, including computer scientists, must think big and revel in their endeavors if they’re to achieve major breakthroughs in the future.
….O’Reilly also cited the so-called Makers Movement, where individuals and loosely assembled teams get together on an ad hoc basis to jury-rig new products from found items. “We’re starting to rethink the nature of consumption,” said O’Reilly. “We’re not consuming stuff as much as we’re consuming ideas,” he said.
