Un gran ladrón

There once was a man who went to a computer trade show. Each day as he entered, the man told the guard at the door:

“I am a great thief, renowned for my feats of shoplifting. Be forewarned, for this trade show shall not escape unplundered.”

This speech disturbed the guard greatly, because there were millions of dollars of computer equipment inside, so he watched the man carefully. But the man merely wandered from booth to booth, humming quietly to himself.

When the man left, the guard took him aside and searched his clothes, but nothing was to be found.

On the next day of the trade show, the man returned and chided the guard saying: “I escaped with a vast booty yesterday, but today will be even better.” So the guard watched him ever more closely, but to no avail.

On the final day of the trade show, the guard could restrain his curiosity no longer. “Sir Thief,” he said, “I am so perplexed, I cannot live in peace. Please enlighten me. What is it that you are stealing?”

The man smiled. “I am stealing ideas”, he said.

    No es el Tao en sí lo que quería postear, sino esa historia en concreto. Más en estos días en los que una buena idea puede solucionarnos la vida.

    Me ha encantado la historia 😀 Te contaré las cosas “divertidas” que me han ocurrido con el proyecto de señalética de la facultad de bbaa, donde las ideas, cuanto más surrealistas e inviables, más gustan….viva en diseño
