Often times to get ideas outside the bubble of distribution and supply chain that we mostly operate within, I read about innovations in other industries, watch TED talks, read books from professors and mad scientists, and so on.

This topic is a touchy one. You may find it slightly odd to be in a blog from what most would consider a "technology" company.
