Serendipity

An interesting bit from knowledge geography and the forth place; some lessons for km from urban mediascapes.
Serendipity: just as two memes can meet by chance on their way through a network or in a document, they can be associated by chance in space, creating new opportunities for associating what has not been associated before.


It is the idea that "associating what has not been associated before" and thus generating opportunities for new knowledge, new discovery and new relationships that is intriguing.
