How can you measure whether an idea is good or bad?
I think you'd rather feel whether an idea is good (measurement, I guess, is better suited if you have a first prototype). Sometimes, it's good if you feel it just works. Sometimes, it's good if you feel that sparkling, that attraction, that call of curiosity...
FOOLS AND TOOLS
To me, transformation is a process leading from one state to another, whereby this ‘other’ state can be the space of an imagined desirable future. Transformation is an opportunity to align efforts to create a better world – on a large or very small scale. It requires critical reflection to account for the interdependence of whatever is transformed with its surroundings and the situated perspective of those involved.
