When thinking about collaboration, what do you think of the term, “a colliding of minds”?
What an interesting phrase. I am not sure how much I agree with it. Maybe it describes the, seemingly at times, unstructured randomness of collaborative activity. Yet a colliding of minds seems to give the impression of something accidental, maybe something even combative, rather than an intentional cooperative meeting of minds for some greater purpose. Thinking creatively, maybe collaboration is more of a dance … some form of creative intellectual choreography.
I would be interested in your thoughts.
