I love watching a nice exchange trading shape. It means I need to have a good think before tipping in my toes without looking dull!

20130806-230110.jpgLast week I observed something at the edge of my knowledge, a discussion about……, innovation and evolution.

The analogy of a biological immune system, antibodies congregating to neutralise the effect a foreign body, seemed to fit quite well? It was a post that has been inspired by listening to Dave Snowden.
