excellent randd team
"An excellent R&D team is more like a jazz ensemble than an orchestra"
"A traditionally managed organization is like an orchestra in which a conductor directs the interpretation and execution of a musical score that specifies each musician's part in great detail. In a jazz ensemble by contrast, the musicians all know the song that is to be performed, but the fine details of the performance are (by design) not completely mapped out"
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
