Smart

We’re dropped into the torrent of churning information, then driven along by its current towards destinations unknown. In this frantic melee we’re often able to grasp at nearby facts, both large and small. Some hold these for curiosity, but others are able to leverage them against the flow, easing their passage. Smart isn’t just what we remember, but rather it’s what we understand -- well-enough -- to be able to wield it effectively as we tumble through the darkness. Smarter is going beyond that to position ourselves for a chance at the better side of the next fork as it comes surging by.
