"Tinkering with John Seely Brown - an interview
"Power of Play
> The construct most overlooked by the 21st century is the power and importance of play. How do I take an idea and play with it, tinker with it, own it?
> You need to learn that not everything works, most things don’t. If the first thing that happens to you when something doesn’t work is that it frightens you, then you’re not going to be very willing to embrace change BUT
> if you realize that things don’t work (which is almost always) you can figure out how to tinker with things and absorb what happens. Often when you are tinkering it doesn’t make perfect logic sense, it’s something you begin to feel in your hands as much as your mind.
> Tinkering brings thoughts and action together in very powerful, magic ways." from source: http://learnstreaming.com/
