Another week and another collection of interesting ideas from around the internet.
As always, thoughts and/or comments are greatly appreciated.

- Growth on the cheap [The Economist]

- Forget Design Thinking and try Hybrid Thinking [Fast Company]

- All We Want to Do is Make Better Products [All Things Digital]
Steve Jobs makes a strong case for obliquity at one of the main drivers behind innovation.
