More on being wrong… May 20, 2008

Just saw this, what a great quote:

Screwing things up is a virtue. Being correct is never the point… Being right can stop all the momentum of a very interesting idea.

Can I get an amen? The quote comes from Robert Rauschenberg, which I picked up reading a great blog Stu put me onto, Indie Breakfast Club. I’ve been thinking and writing a lot lately about being wrong, great to see I’m not alone.

What are you still doing here? The post is over! Go check out Indie Breakfast Club, tell ’em I sent you.

Thanks for shout-out, David! The Rauschenberg article is worth 10 mins if you have time… a lot of insight in there.
