Science vs Art
This sums up my feelings perfectly. Although I'd put the humanities in there too.

You hear a lot about how important it is to have 'a big idea' in order to innovate. But having a big idea doesn’t mean you also need to invent a brand new space or product category. Markets that are already growing quickly and full of competition may just need a different angle or unique expertise. Why can this work better? Empty markets are often empty for a reason – there just isn’t enough demand to sustain a growing venture.

If you look at many of Google’s successes (think Search, Gmail, Chrome, etc.), you’ll see that they didn’t come from entering brand new spaces. Instead, we found crowded fields and applied unique technical insights, offering something that worked better than what was already out there.

Presentation for the Erasmus Mundus Master on MSP in Seville (Spain) in February 2014. The aim of the talk was to describe briefly how countries work work MSP in the Baltic Sea and to show some experiences of professionals working with different tasks related to Maritime Spatial Planning

When you listen to music, multiple areas of your brain become engaged and active. But when you actually play an instrument, that activity becomes more like a full-body brain workout. What's going on? Anita Collins explains the fireworks that go off in musicians' brains when they play, and examines some of the long-term positive effects of this mental workout.

Small-Town Restaurant Asks Guests to Pin Where They’re From on a Map
The tiny town of Moss Landing, California (population 204 as of 2010) is where you will find Phil’s Fish Market, a small-town restaurant with worldwide appeal.

The BBC proclaimed Phil’s one of the ‘World’s Best Beach Restaurants‘ and it has also been featured on several Food Network shows including: Bobby Flay’s Throwdown and Bobby and Jamie Dean’s Road Tasted.

At the entrance you will find a large map of the world that asks, “Where are you visiting from?” Beneath patrons will find a large bowl of push pins. The map shown below is the FIFTH version, as previous maps are replaced when they get ‘too full’. Not bad considering the restaurant has been open for 13 years!

It’s a fun idea and great way to promote the restaurant’s international appeal.
