Acknowledging Importance

In a post about early adoption my friend Eric Nehrlich hits on something I've been noticing quite a lot lately: The "phenomenon of feeling like something new is important, without quite being able to describe why." This happened to me just yesterday as I was reading Chris Anderson's piece on the end of theory and recognized it's importance but couldn't necessarily describe why quite yet. In a way it was like by acknowledging the importance I was able to file it away in an especially accessible spot, ready to find the perfect connection and come to life at some point in the near future. (I believe Grant talked about something like this at PSFK's New York Conference, though I need to go back and watch the video.)
