“I’m glad I attended. I learned enough new things, got enough new ideas and connected with enough great people to easily justify the time and cost of attendance. I’m eager to put all this new knowledge and my new connections to work.”

Scientist Albert Szent-Gyorgyi said that creative thinking consists of “looking at the same thing as everyone else and thinking something different.” The first person who looked at waste sawdust and thought “compressed fire log” did this. So did the first person who felt a burr and thought “Velcro,” or saw a bat flying at night and thought “radar,” or saw an armadillo and thought “military tank.” Gutenberg combined the wine press and the coin punch to create movable type and the printing press.

3) What do the protagonists do? The central character of James Halperin's speculative novel, The Truth Machine, is a computer whiz. What better place to look for like-minded readers than the Web? Even before the pub date, Halperin put material from and about his story on his Ivy Press site, and the Random House site featured it too. Every month, several thousand visitors to the site are a source of praise, sales, and word-of-mouth momentum. Typical comments are: "I will definitely buy the book." "I work at (bookstore) and will be recommending it." "I will definitely purchase it." And from another bookseller, "Will recommend it to my customers and managers."
