Definition: Defining “cool” is like defining “obscenity” – “Tough to define, but I know it when I see it.” As I discover a cool trailer, I can feel the smile on my face form. Interestingly enough, cool does not equate to expensive to produce. Cool comes more from unusual and new.
Originally, people were cool if they remained calm under stress. What is cool can be very age specific. Cool to a teenager is something their peers accept, but their parents reject. Winning is cool, but winning at all costs is not. Cool does not conform, is not predictable and takes reasonable risks.
