The Medici Effect

A small flock of angels, class samples from the ongoing
Angel Project running through December 30, 2008.

This morning I ran across a reference to the Medici Effect, and I thought 'YES!!!'

By attracting talented souls from so many different fields and cultures, the Medicis got all these creative people in contact with one another to trade ideas and collaborate. This intersection of concepts and diverse backgrounds kicked off the Renaissance, one of the most innovative eras in human history.

The internet enables artists and all like-minded spirits to gather together in the same way. I envision The Angel Project as a small, humble version of The Medici Effect. Yes, we are starting off small, but already there are people enrolled who have never created anything similar, but who are attracted to the concept of placing angels with those who need them....and which of us can't use one or two? It is my plan to continue this project next year and thereafter. And, if I can't, I am sure there will be someone else to step forward and direct the effort.

The reason angels can fly is because they take themselves lightly. ~G.K. Chesterton
