Don’t you hate that term… A term normally thrown around by some management know it all (is that me??) in a lame attempt to try and get people to think about something in a different way.  As often as not we are trying to tackle an issue head on and we aren’t seeing things from another angle. 

So what does thinking outside the box mean?  Well, I find the best place to look for an example of something that is out of the ordinary is to look for people that are trying to do things erroniously.  Generally hackers or trojen writers since they are trying to use the tools at hand in a unique way to get a job done, that people may not done to them.

Anyway an interesting article this morning about how to create 2 files with the same name in windows.  As I am sure you will quickly way “that isn’t possible”, but just think outside the box 🙂
