Below are some of the big ideas gathered from SXSW:  ”Lessons from Yuri Mulner (A Chat with Vanity Fair)”:   We need to place more emphasis on science to increase the likeliness of “moon shots,” i.e. achieving the incredible.   “Intellectual achievement does not have practical applications.”  We must support the impractical, like Einstein, in addition to investing in short-term business ideas for profit.   “We outsourced functions of our brain to Google.”  A reminder that we still have brains even if you take Google away.  “In the next few years we’ll be able to figure everything out.”  This is why the current moment of curiosity is so precious.   Social media is not an impediment to work but an “enabling mechanism” to share more information with other people.

If you're an WRITER or aspiring blogger, I highly recommend doing these 3 things:

1. Create your own blog and publish something new every day (read my post on how to set up a FREE blog on Wordpress).
2. Read more. Try Audible free and experience the world's largest library of audiobooks.
3. Buy an All-Access Pass from Masterclass to learn from the best writers in the world.
