Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.


The Trendsetter's goal is to be the second person in the world to catch the latest disease. They watch carefully for inovations, always ready to jump on board. But more importantly, other people watch them. Unlike the Innovators, they are cool, so when they pick up an innovation, it becomes cool. A Trendsetter's most important job is gatekeeper, the filter that separates out real Innovators from those crazy peoeple wearing garbage bags.
