This evening I was looking at the beautifull Dutch sunset and day dreaming about several things. And than a question popped-up. When is an idea a good idea? Ted.com has the slogan: Ideas worth spreading It means that the idea's they show are scaleable. When you look at Vincent van Gogh you see that his idea seems to be a good idea 80 years later. What do you think.

Maybe it is just perception? About the classification "good" good is: duplicated in minds and words many times or good is: when the result is used many times or good is: when it gives new impulses for others to start acting or good is: completely useless but brilliant Fascinating about TED is that it generates a place of attention and presents thoughts that are quite easy to understand. The medium video is common accepted and is a good "mean of transport". Groeten / Regards, Sibren [ reply to this comment ] [ edit ] [ hide ]

In my view, if an idea create a major shift for humanity for a meaningful life, it can be considered as a goo idea. Springboarding your wonderful example, Vincent'ss invisibly hidden ideas could be captured via observant eyes and they can directly create a tremendous shift in our emotions in his art work. Van Gogh museum was the only museum so far which brought instant tears to my eyes with a few glances when I entered to it in my visit to Amsterdam.

Why? Because when an idea makes sense it's already generally accepted, so is not a new idea. When it makes people change, when your context allows you to see what others can't and your passion drives you on then you know you have a good idea. Were Einstein's ideas on relativity good ones? Did people say 'That makes sense' when he first presented them? I think the answers to those two questions are yes and no respectively.

Likes (3) by Sibren vd Burgt on 13-Jul-10 2:06pm@Mehmet What a powerful emotional description of your visit to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. Indeed, his idea of transforming the emotional state to the surface was a big one. Strong brush strokes combined with overwhelming coulor intensity/sensitivity. So a good idea makes a major shift, wow, that idea is really big than! Groeten / Regards, Sibren [ reply to this comment ] [ edit ] [ hide ]

Likes (0) by Sibren vd Burgt on 13-Jul-10 3:09pm@ William Interesting description, tank you William it comes close to how I see it. But stil there is a point where few words are getting fluent: 1. a thought you have 2. putting the label "an idea" on it 3. someone recognizes it as an idea and uses the concept in his own context "when your context allows you to see what others can't" > that will be nr 2 I like you explanation about the "creazy" thoughts and the passion behind the thought. There are many creazy thoughts of people but not recognized as a good idea. In Holland you have a TV program about "het beste idee van Nederland", trying to get your business idea realized. "Because when an idea makes sense it's already generally accepted, so is not a new idea." Not a new idea but a it was a good one once I will try to summ-up what we have so far. A good idea must be: - a new thought, mostly a bit "creazy" - an unique insight - having the idea-label - recognized as an idea - usefull for others Still in my mind: How come when an idea gets the tag "good" years later,(like the example of Einstein and van Gogh? How many idea's are available now without having the label and not beëing used but just as brilliant? Groeten / Regards, Sibren [ reply to this comment ] [ edit ] [ hide ]

A good idea is a good idea, when I'm assured about it, when it feels right for me, if this idea gives me the passion to resist all negative comments and so called "good advices", when I'm burning for this idea. And that has not to be an idea like Einstein has had or Da Vinci or Van Gogh, a good idea also can be a very small idea about making anything in everyday life better.

A good idea, I believe as an inventor for 25 years; is one which can move mountains (our fundemental thoughts) without yet being mass produced. It touches everyones thoughts and provokes new thinking. Kindly take a look at such an idea. Everything made or grown requires clean water. These industries then pollute giving us wastewater. Each litre of Plastic bottled Water requires 3 litres of water to produce. There is a new more environmental solution. SVDs do not use plastic oil-based bottles or transportation costs.

Good is one level, right is higher still. Along the way I've experienced both opposition and inspired agreement to ideas, neither of which have led to the bearing of fruit, and right is still right even if good is debatable.

I agree Solveigh, that's a fascinating aspect. As some people think about idea's for "the univers", an invention of the paperclip for example is a good idea also. literal a smal object, does not change the world really but after many years still very respected and used as an example of "a good idea".

Likes (0) by Sibren vd Burgt on 16-Jul-10 8:15am@Martin Nice observation, the right idea - and how to bear fruit. I think you never know whether the right idea will be successfull. Look at many businessidea's, on paper good and maybe the right idea - and still ... no fruit. Sometimes the idea is not on the same wavelength with time, situation, etc. If someone came - as first person in the world - with the idea of a paperclip today, I think nothing happens.
