Blue sky ideas describe ideas and inventions that are very ambitious and ahead of their time. They are often so far ahead of their time that they are referred to as bleeding edge, a contrast with leading edge and a pun. The leading edge provides some assurance of leadership and a market edge for an invention. The bleeding edge suggests the resources time and effort to proselytize and educate users, technical people and everyone else to bring something far ahead of its time to fruition and into use.
Blood sweat and tears, and even then truly radical new ideas are not always accepted within the originator's lifetimes. Think about Evolution and Natural Selection, DNA as the genetic Material, the weirdness of quantum mechanics, the existence of black holes, prions ... these are all examples of ideas before their time.
Now think about Space Exploration, nanotechnology, Artificial intelligence, genetically tailored medicine... these are all bleeding edge technologies that were very difficult to move forward. Some are still struggling and redefining themselves. Many have far-reaching potential impacts, communicated by Visionary innovators. The blue sky of potential at the end of all that bleeding edge of hard work.
The little drawing Blue Sky Ideas tries to capture some of that visionary, reach for the skies, mood and feeling of bold forward motion through iterations of innovation and growing understanding of complex problems. Interlocking and concentric circles suggest expansion and movement. Color is used to both suggest the qualities of the blue sky and to also convey an increasing lightness and tenuousness from the lower right corner upwards and outwards. A sweep of intellectual ambition, broken down into circles of knowledge ans steps of elucidation. The ripple effects of new knowledge and spawning of new ambitious ideas are also alluded to visually.
