Where Kevin Rose’s idea for Digg was born

Just saw this on Bryson Moore’s blog, and think it is a great photo for a three reasons:

1. It shows the power of thinking visually.
2. It shows how to get ideas down on paper.
3. It shows that tools you love help facilitate #1 and #2.

I don’t know Kevin, and I don’t use Digg that much, but I like his taste in notebooks and writing instruments.

Creative thinking requires the right tools, and those are two very practical and very powerful ones.

Go out and buy a pen and a notebook you will love, and that you will use. I have a shelf full of Moleskines and a cup full of these pens. You will use them more if you love them.

And the key to great ideas is to have a lot of ideas — and get them on paper fast.

    I work out my software ideas exactly the same way. My wife calls it the “Genius Book”
