As someone who spends 90% of my free time on the internet, I can definitely agree that the collective mind of the masses helps to inspire great ideas that might not have been thought of otherwise. I get most of my inspiration from things online, whether it be from something that someone said, or something that I saw. If I didn’t have access to this massive network of people, everything that I do would be completely different. Thanks to the internet, I have a great network of friends from around the world. They come from a wide variety of backgrounds, and have a wide variety of experiences to draw from, and they help me to see the world in a completely different way than I otherwise would have.

The article mentions that 90% of everything created is crap, but I think that’s okay. You need to make the really bad stuff before you can get better. As long as you’re constantly producing things, you will eventually improve.
