Exponential learning

I was at a Kleiner Perkins event once and scribbled down a line that I can’t attribute or find online, but it went something like, “Everyone in a company learns linearly, and those who build networks across company learn exponentially.” It’s clearly from the tech universe as it is glancingly from a Ray Kurzweill post. I like to think it can be broadened across a company or tech as an industry — and to imagine that when you build networks across communities we learn exponentially. That seems especially appropriately when we consider how the upside down world has now canvased our entire universe of thought.
