No Strings Attached

November 27th, 2008

I was reading this brilliant article on Yoshiro Nakamatsu, Japanese Inventor.

A modern day Nikola Tesla.

This paragraph struck out to me:

“The key to successful innovation, according to Nakamatsu, is “freedom of intelligence.” By this he means working with no strings attached. Nakamatsu says he has never sought funding from any person, company or government and prefers to develop and produce his own inventions. “If you ask or borrow money from other people, you cannot keep freedom of intelligence,” he says simply.”

This freedom, opens up the potential to anything you can dream of.

Seth Godin says the same on his blog, he doesn’t work for anyone, or allow comments as that may impair him.

Really he wants to unleash the possibilities.

It was on this point I wanted to say this blog has no strings attached.

This isn’t here to push products out there.

It’s to provide an outlet to get ideas out there.

Like Seth I had no comments, but opened it up, to let you guys talk.

As honestly (if you know me well) I do what I want anyway. No strings attached.

You can do what YOU want

Here’s just a list of all the cool things you can do:

  • Run your own tv show | Wine Library
  • Have your own Podcast
  • Be an author through lulu.com or Createspace
  • Be a rockstar using iTunes + Myspace + Last.fm
  • Build your own entertainment network by syndicating youtube videos
  • Build your own Facebook with Ning
  • Design your own products (virtually anything) through Ponoko
  • Brand your own products, drinks, beds, jeans by sourcing products through AliBaba
  • Design your own t-shirts with Threadless
  • Become an expert in your area through blogging
  • Talk to anyone, skip secretaries, connect with them via Twitter / Facebook / Linkedin

It’s awesome! The world literally is your oyster if you take the step and turn up.

Creativity is only going to soar over the next 5 – 10 years, you can dabble in 1, or 5 of these, try your hand at writing, building your own product, a podcast.

Very very exciting, what else would you add to this list? It’s only a small fraction of the possibilities.
