Stealing or Borrowing both Work

Does Innovation have to be that tough? Picasso said, “Good artist copy,  Great artist steal.  What do you think?

Austin Kleon’s talk Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative is a creative manifesto based on 10 things he wish he’d heard when he was starting out. Austin is a writer and artist. He’s the author of Newspaper Blackout, a best-selling book of poetry made by redacting newspaper articles with a permanent marker. Austin’s talk was delivered as part of the TEDxKC presentation of TEDxChange.

Along the same line is a book Borrowing Brilliance: The Six Steps to Business Innovation by Building on the Ideas of Others that I blogged about several years ago, A Look at Innovation from a Different Angle.
