Gerald M. Weinberg wrote years ago that ideas come from three sources:
(1) mistakes, (2) borrowing, and (3) mixing. He didn't use those exact terms. Your post highlights the mixing component. I have been called a "creative" person because I follow Weinberg's advice. I sit around and think of ways to mix old ideas and new situations. I make lots of mistakes (the easy one). I do extensive research (a kind way of saying I borrow a lot).
