Does this scenario sound familiar?

What makes Hemp OpenSpace so SPECIAL?
SERENDIPITY + INTERACTIVITY
Steve Jobs once said, "Creativity comes from spontaneous meetings, from random discussions. You run into someone, you ask what they're doing, you say 'Wow,' and soon you're cooking up all sorts of ideas." He attributed that creativity to serendipity.
