From this to that…

January 17, 2008

I recently spoke with some of my friends asking them about their favourite author and quite a few mentioned: Malcolm Gladwell. So I trooped down to the relevant section at the British Council Library during my regular visits there and looked up his famous book “The Tipping Point” Unfortunately it was out.

Neverthless, I got his other book issued called “Blink” It’s a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that appear to be made in an instant – in the blink of an eye. Very interesting read till now. Still reading.

I even thought up an analogy to how books are read nowadays. First the author pens his thoughts to paper: INK. The reader then reads the book and develops an understanding of all these thoughts together: LINK. Soon after one has read the book, we move on looking at more fodder for our brain, and don’t necessarily put our learnings into action. It’s gone then: BLINK.

INK > LINK > BLINK

Have you ever looked at a complete word and thought of how many words you could make out of that one word? That’s what got me thinking. Blink. Blink.
