From Dave Lull who, like me, enjoys seeing NNT’s ideas spreading far and wide.

Jean Bauer interjects: “Memories of serendipitous discoveries in physical stacks are example of Black Swan Theory. Rarely happens but very memorable.”

Brian: “Yes. But… the impact that it has probably makes for a larger memory of it.”

Chris: “And I think it’s especially stack-based serendipity that gets played up. We don’t talk about social networks this way.”

Brian: “I think we are just getting there with online serendipity … it is still much newer phenomena than physical.”
