"... We tend to greet innovation with an either/or assumption, either we use the old or the new.
But this is not an either/or world we live in; it’s a both/and world—a world of paper and paperless, online and in-person, digital and analog, old media and new media...
... When looking at new technology, remember the Both/And Principle and focus on integrating the old with the new to create more value than either have by themselves... "
~ technology futurist Daniel Burrus;
For me, a good example is: I do quick hand-crafted diagramming sketches of salient points, whenever I read/review books and/or online magazine articles in my large ideas scratchpad.
When I need to do presentation, I transcribe some of them into fancy and colourful pieces with the aid of available software-based mapping tools like SmartDraw Pro, MindManager or VisiMap Pro.
Both ways, comprising the old and the new methods, serve their unique purposes.
