Diwali Wishes and a Related Thought

For all my readers who are celebrating Diwali, I want to wish you a very Happy Diwali.

Diwali is the festival of lights. As we know we all need LOTS of lights to get out of the economic darkness that’s looming 🙂

Now, a quick related thought.

I was reading John Maeda’s brilliant book called “The Laws of Simplicity“. John recollects the lesson that he learned from his teacher Nicholas Negropante at MIT. I quote John Maeda here:

“I was once advised by my teacher Nicholas Negropante to become a light bulb instead of a laser beam, at an age and time in my career when I was all focus. His point was that you can either brighten a single point with a laser precision, or else use the same light to illuminate everything around you.”

Enjoy the week ahead!
