During the course of my career I’ve run across a handful of truly amazing people. That’s one of the definite perks of being a consultant, you meet lots of people so statistically speaking at some point you’re going to find some really awesome people. One of those people for me is Rodger Smith. Rodger is perhaps the most creative guy that anyone will ever meet. Picking out his brilliance is as easy or as difficult as looking at the desktop on his Mac. The first time I saw it I was instantly in awe and confused at the same time. There was an insanely organized set of post it notes on his desktop. This was amazing because on the one hand we have unstructured information at its finest. Post it notes — how many of them do you lose in a year? I think I’m single handedly responsible for killing a forest with the ones I’ve lost. On the other hand, there’s an order and a symmetry to how they’re setup. It’s order woven through the chaos.
Why do I bring this up? Well, I got a note from Rodger today about an independent film he’s producing. The film is My Name is Jerry. I won’t pretend understand it other than what you can read for yourself — however, I can tell you that if Rodger’s involved it’s worth checking out. (So go there now.)
