I liked this argument for taking the risk of being different from Gavin Heaton: there’s already a surfeit of sameness in the world.
But it is precisely because of this connectedness that you must take the risk with your idea your vision and even your “expertise”. We read the same blog posts watch the same videos and discuss the same subjects on Twitter – in fact, these social networks have been developed with the express purpose of brining us together. They allow us to flock, to collaborate and to share. It’s no wonder that the SAME new idea appears on opposite sides of the world at the SAME time.
