"Teamwork is like ingredients. It's like how a chef makes a chocolate cake. A chef cannot make a chocolate cake out of a bag of potatoes. It's just not possible. And you cannot make a team that works out of people who like each other or dislike each other or whatever."
With a good broom, all the strands are bound together and moving in the same direction. And a good leader will push the whole thing in the right direction and at an appropriate pace.
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.
