I have a handful of deeper ideas that have been sitting in my backpack for a long time and that need to be given a chance to blossom. The last thing I want, however, is to be a lone nut working my ideas out in a vacuum, which is an easy trap to fall into. I need to engage with other people, to listen and talk, both to shape the ideas, connect them to others' visions, and to help them spread out.
I believe it's about intellectual entrepreneurship, really. When you stop to think about it, not so many people are listening closely. Some of the most promising innovations are challenging and won't go very far just by virtue of their intrinsic strength. They need proselytes to make their way into widespread acceptance. They need to be articulated clearly, and presented from different angles. Their significance has to be explained in different ways to different people. It's challenging work, but my feeling is that too few people are doing it. I think this is a role I want to take on at this point.
