We discovered it by accident. The greatest breakthroughs are usually found that way. The key to these discoveries was that bright people were working on projects they were passionate about. There is no substitute for intelligence combined with passion.

The idea is that when you let smart people work on big ideas that they care about, good things happen... even if it's unexpected. Michael J. Carr is one of those smart people.
