  • Auto wiring. With a few of these beauties you can quickly tame the most unruly of sound systems. On the other hand, you should subtract $200 for every zip strip you find on a used car you are planning to purchase.
  • Criminal Mischief. I notice the boys in blue have incorporated a large sturdy type for handcuffing the unruly.
  • Straight and narrow. Holding tall plants upright.
  • Tamper seal. Secure the D-rings on your luggage with a zip tie and you’ll know if they have been opened.
  • Key ring.
  • Lobster cuffs. Secure those big lobster pinchers with a zip tie.
  • Identification. Put a colored one on your Power Puff Girls lunch box so you can tell it from the other kids.
  • Hung ups. Slip them through a peg board to hang things on.
  • Tomato buddy. Attach tomato plants to the wire cage.
  • Emergency sneaker lace. In a pinch a zip tie will hold you shoe together if you break a lace.

What are your favorite uses.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
