  1. It’s called “kintsugi” (golden joinery) or “kintsukuroi” (golden repair). It’s a way of repairing broken pottery with resin mixed with gold dust. But there’s a twist to it. It was first done to appease a Shogun who was displeased with a costly repair job he considered ugly. But when it caught on, people liked it so much that everyone began breaking their quality pottery just so they could have it re-joined with gold.

    Interesting adoption metaphor, no?
