Ideas are meant to be shared. Brainstorms, "Aha!" moments, and brilliant notions were meant to be broadcasted.
So, when you have some sort of revelation, be sure to text it, tweet it, blog it, write it down, tell someone, or send it out to the world by carrier pigeon.
When ideas spread, they have a chance to change the world. When kept inside, the idea may very well die in such a vacuum.
Just as we wonder about trees, if an idea is born, but no one is around to notice it, does it make an impact?
