The power of thinking differently has different value itself depending on where it’s being used.
We talk about the concept of disruption–of boldly throwing monkey wrenches in processes not out of spite or planning, but because progress is often the result of chaos.
So our admiration for Steve Jobs makes sense. In the world of Technology, Education, Learning, and even Culture itself, thinking differently is at worst a path to revelation, and at best, the way to spectacular change.
