Tooling the Impossible
This is awesome! An old post from Geeking with Greg, quoting Google Earth CTO Michael Jones:
Your perception of a thing that is a viable problem to think about is shaped by the tool you can use.This is good stuff. But the opposite is also true. If you think about the tool you might be able to use, you can solve some impossible problems. Somewhere in here, there's also the need to focus tools on specific problems, rather than general issues. Focus on the impossible, and make a tool that makes it possible.
