Quote of the Day

HANS

You know how Americans are, Kiki. They all love to travel, and then they only want to meet other Americans and talk about how hard it is to get a decent hamburger.

From Naked Lunch (1991)

And in the end
the love you take
is equal to
the love you make.

Time it was and what a time it was
It was, a time of innocence
a time of confidences.
Long ago it must be
I had a photograph
preserve your memories
there all that's left you.

jpm,

Are you quoting from Naked Lunch the movie or its eponymous novel by William S. Burroughs (surely, one of the great Beats)?

Some fsvorites of mine from the book "Weird Ideas that Work", by Robert Sutton, a professor of management science and engineering at the Stanford University School of Engineering:

Hire slow learners of the organizational code. Specifically, hire people with a special kind of stupidity or stubbornness -- who avoid, ignore, or reject how things are "supposed to be done around here." Surround those slow learners with fast learners who understand how to promote their creative ideas.

Hire people who make you uncomfortable -- even those whom you dislike. Once you've hired people who prompt discomfort, take extra care to listen to their ideas.

Encourage people to ignore superiors and peers. Hire defiant outsiders. Rather than teaching newcomers about company history or procedure, have the newcomers teach the old-timers how to think and act. Encourage people to drive you crazy by doing what they think is right rather than what they are told.

Find happy people, and let them fight. If you want innovation, you need upbeat people who know the right way to battle. Avoid conflict during the earliest stages of the creative process, but encourage people to fight over ideas in the intermediate stages.

There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance - that principle is contempt prior to investigation.
