"Scenius" - a term coined by Brian Eno - is the communal form of the concept of genius. This article gives a general description of the scenius' predominant traits...

Quote:
"Although many have tried many times, it is not really possible to command scenius into being. Every start up company, or university would like their offices to be an example of scenius. The number of cities in the world hoping to recreate the scenius of Silicon Valley is endless, but very few have achieved anything close. Innumerable art scenes begin and vanish quickly. The serendipitous ingredients for scenius are hard to control. They depend on the presence of the right early pioneers. A place that is open, but not too open. A buffer that is tolerant of outlaws. And some flash of excitement to kick off the virtuous circle. You just can't order this."

Pretty much dependent on the resonance of the exchange Wink

The key is having people (and places) that are sufficiently open yet critically discerning of what will be useful and what must be discarded or ignored.

Be it business acumen or artistic endeavor, as the feed and grow cycles continue, the sky is the limit. All too often, synergy and momentum is lost when squabbling over who is right (or even who has the right(s)) in the battle for egoic supremacy. When the participants can become transparent to the wants and desires for power and control, their creative juices lubricate the machinery of performance and the exponential expansion of their creativity is evidenced.

This is the common thread in all outstanding exploits.
