I’m starting a new set of categories for things that are ‘brilliant’. I thought about doing this after Susan Daly tweeted about Roddy Doyle’s short story of the same name (commissioned for this year’s St Patrick’s Day Festival). It’s a great wee story—have a read of it.
She reckoned it’d be a good way of sorting through life—things are either ‘brilliant’ or ‘not brilliant’. A rather pleasing dichotomy, I hope you’ll agree.
I thought more about the idea and decided that brilliance could be sub-divided into the following categories:
- the Technically Brilliant
- the Intellectually Brilliant
- the Ethically Brilliant
I will blog again about what I mean by those but for now I just wanted to get them up on the site so I could demonstrate what I mean by them. (And the blog post I’d started got swallowed in an iPod app upgrade.)
I had a category called ‘beautiful minds’ that I used for things of this ilk before; this’ll bookend with that.
