This is why I dig Bruce Sterling. He starts off his keynote at Idea 2006 reciting a list of quotes gathered during the conference and winds up with some great analysis of Rem Koolhaas' Seattle Public Library (where the conference was held). In between he talked about the new World Changing book and the open source/free culture economic model.
This is the kind of scatter-brained, broad-based modus operandi that I can really relate to. It suggests a way of functioning that disregards disciplinary boundaries, treating each specialization as a neighbor from which new tools can be liberally borrowed.
