If you regularly read my blog, you know that I especially like posts/articles on Creativity. Here are two inspirational sources you may also enjoy:
What's a Mash-Up? According to Fraley:
"Mash-Ups, put simply, are combinations. In innovation work, the desire in doing a Mash-Up is to get to that wonderful fresh snow of new thinking.

Follow Your Fascination:
"If you find yourself fascinated by a new idea, chances are good that there's something meaningful about it for you to consider.

Out of the thousands of ideas with the power to capture our imagination, the felt fascination for one of them is a clue that there's something worthy of our engagement."
What new ideas will you come up with this weekend?
