The name chosen for this blog is based on a natural phenomenon that occurs when two waves collide to create a new wave pattern and areas of increased amplitude (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constructive_interference)

Even if not everyone remembers learning about it, many of us likely noticed this many times while on, in, or around water. If this does not sound familiar, watch it happen on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2D74tN-k5nM)

When trying to come up with a term to expresses the positive effect of bringing together diversity of thought, background, educational and life experiences to create something new and positive, I made my own poll on the “message” of using constructive interference. Some of my friends got caught up in the negative connotation of “interference”, yet, those who could still remember learning about interference, understood the message and actually liked it. The physicists and the engineers were 100% sold on it! Our society is “conflict” adverse, and seeks to foresee and prevent it at all cost, however it is well known that positive conflict results in the most creative solutions.
