I think I missed my own point last night. The sift experiment isn’t about finding bright answers. It’s about finding the right pieces.

In Davidson’s analysis, the subjects were given more than enough pieces to complete a puzzling problem. The task was to see which pieces were relevant to the solution.

In my analysis, entrepreneurs often don’t even have all the pieces (let alone extra useless ones). The sift experiment brings more (hopefully helpful) pieces into the game. Davidson’s research suggests this will help in a significant way.
