Everything is research

From William Gibson‘s blog:

A You write from 10AM til whenever. Is research a separate activity?
Q I don’t regard research as a separate activity. From anything. Everything is research. Relatively little great stuff turns up for me as a result of deliberately looking. Life is crowd-sourcing. In a good way.
A The reason I ask is that research tends to wander off into the weeds so easily, especially on the internets.
Q But they hide the good stuff *in the weeds*!

This is so many kinds of good.  Professional development shouldn’t be limited to seminars and workshops.
