I think it is very diffucult to produce ideas in a vacuum. Most of us use
these sources to trigger new ideas, so we are using our imagination. Plus
wading through hundreds of magazines is not a lazy endeavor.

Even if you came up with a bunch of ideas "all by yourself" you'd probably
find them showing up in other places. Which was the point of my other post.
Now the question is . . . Did you see it before? or Did someone else have
