on predicting good work

I've had the fortune to observe people trying to make new and interesting things at extremely different scales -- from $100 budgets to $100,000,000 budgets.

One thing that I find very consistent: good ideas come from anywhere. The biggest factor in predicting where good work will come from is "how much does this person actually care about what they are working on?"
