I was in a meeting with a bunch of folks, talking about consulting projects. Dan H. was giving an update, and he mentioned that he had a meeting where they just spitballed ideas around. The phrase caught my fancy for a few reasons:
- spitballs are small, damp and meant to be thrown
- you use them to communicate with people
- you can make them quickly
- when you toss one and it hits the mark, you feel proud
Turns out that rough, fast, early ideas have a lot in common with spitballs. Spitball ideas FTW!
