Great ideas wanted

If you want to have good ideas you must have many ideas. Most of them will be wrong, and what you have to learn is which ones to throw away.”
Linus Pauling

I love this quote from Linus Pauling. I see it as an Engineer’s equivalent of a sales funnel.
The more ideas (leads) you stuff into the top of the funnel, the more likely you’ll have great ideas (customers) coming out at the bottom of the funnel.

I’m completely humbled by the number of immensely talented and accomplished OSS experts who subscribe to and/or read the content here on PAOSS. As a collective, you clearly have a lot of brilliant ideas pouring from the idea funnel.

Would you like to share with the community where the reliable stream of ideas at the top of your funnel come from? Who are your thought leaders?

Customers? Content sources (eg books, websites)? Vendors? Divine inspiration? Mentors? Colleagues? Standards bodies? The problems that you face in your daily projects?
