Kevin Kelly has posted "Scenius", a concept suggested by Brian Eno to suggest the creativity embedded in groups. The characteristics of scenius are -

  • Mutual appreciation - Cool ideas and people buoy each other
  • Rapid exchange of tools and techniques - new ideas are flaunted and shared
  • Network effects of success - success is celebrated as mutual, and of the group
  • Local tolerance for novelties - space for crazy and novel solutions to grow

After reading Kevin's post, I've got to say I've been blessed my entire working career to find myself with rockin' peers.
