    Recognizing the Future

    In nature, evolution may manifest as freaks of nature. The first centipede probably looked like a multi-bodied freak to all the existing single-bodied organisms.

    There's an important lesson here when we think something is out of place, broken, or just unnaturally strange. Whether it's in nature, design, business, or technology, never forget to consider whether the freakishness of a new idea represents a revolutionary improvement, a huge leap, an innovation. It'd be a real shame to miss the future because you dismissed it when it showed up right in front of you.
