Where do ideas come from? Do they come to us in a "eureka moment" like Isaac Newton's proverbial apple falling on his head? Steven Johnson's research shows that it takes a long time (the slow hunch), and a space of sharing (the liquid network) for us to come up with our best ideas. In this TED talk, Johnson focuses on spaces of creativity and shared patterns of innovation that encourage us to connect ideas rather than protect them. "Chance favors the connected mind."
