Story of graphene. How did this happen? No one new they were missing an iPad before it was created. Whole new category. How to give the world something it didn’t know it was missing…. 460 works of art. Equal technical quality, but non-commissioned works rated higher for creative quality by professional artists. Breakthrough work came from non-commissioned work. FedEx days at Atlassian involves giving them Thursday afternoon to make something that they have to show on Friday afternoons. We can do this as GC. Intuit 10% time. Graphene discovery came from non-commissioned work… Friday evening experiments. Carve out time for non-commissioned work. Previously won ignoble prize for levitating a frog. If you really want to change the world, you have to levitate some frogs.
