In the coming weeks I will be posting some 'live' blank-page brainstorms. With these BP brainstorms I start out with a blank page and with no (initial) objectives. During the brainstorm I often find new tangents and directions of thought; it called almost be called 'meandering' brainstorming. During the brainstorming I am not just looking for new ideas - the brainstorms can:
Create new ideas
Provide thought-provoking questions
Reveal ideas bubbling on the edge of consciousness
Highlight gaps in knowledge and areas for further research
Trigger memories of 'forgotten' ideas from the past.
