Creating a Culture of Ideas Famous author and futurist, Nicholas Negroponte writes about the role that culture plays in the creation and development of new ideas. His premise is that "expertise is over-rated" and that to build a nation of innovators, " we should focus on youth, diversity, and collaboration".

Although I don't agree with the brashness of that statement (after all, you cannot create an idea without some level of expertise - even if it is only a basic one), he does put out some excellent thoughts that support the necessity for diversity over sheer academic intelligence as well as the advantages of a collaborative business environment. Definately a must-read article!
