Boston Vs. San Francisco: Two Cultures of Innovation

Boston Vs. San Francisco: Two Cultures of Innovation | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Wade Roush
Let’s say you’re an ambitious, creative professional or entrepreneur working in the United States. You’re interested in technology, you have the luxury of mobility, and you want to be close to the center of things.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"My own take, based on observing the personalities and operating styles of hundreds of active entrepreneurs in each location, is that both Boston and San Francisco boast incredibly strong innovation cultures. But they’re not the same, of course. Broadly speaking, their entrepreneurs draw energy and inspiration from different sources, and prioritize different goals. It’s a case of contrasting preferences or tendencies, like left-handedness or right-handedness. Neither is better, and each has its advantages." Wade Roush

Can you supercharge your brain?

Can you supercharge your brain? | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
The US military is very interested in applying mild electrical currents to the brain.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"TDCS (Transcranial Direct-Current Stimulation) is not the only brain stimulation tool that he finds interesting. As well as ongoing work into magnetic stimulation, other teams are looking at ultrasound and even laser light, as well as different forms of electrical stimulation, using alternating current, for example. McKinley is about to start looking at ultrasound too, and he’s interested in how alternating current can influence brainwaves. But while he says he’s agnostic about what type of stimulation might turn out to be best for cognitive enhancement, tDCS has some advantages. For a start, unlike ultrasound or magnetism, electricity is a natural part of brain-cell communication, and it’s cheap and portable. He thinks tDCS is the best bet for a wearable brain-stimulating device."

World Cup 2022 can inspire cool ideas

World Cup 2022 can inspire cool ideas | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

The World Cup is hotting up – literally. A temperature of 38.8C on the pitch has already been recorded. Does this give the teams used to playing in a tropical climate an unfair advantage? One way to make things more equitable would be to air-condition the stadiums, which sounds mad until you realise that this is exactly what Qatar's organisers have said they'll do for the 2022 World Cup. And with daytime temperatures in Qatar often exceeding 45C during the day, such measures will be absolutely essential.

 

Carlos Fosca's insight:

"Traditional air conditioning works in much the same way as a fridge. A liquid with a low boiling point is pumped around a set of copper tubes and as warm air passes over the tubes it raises the temperature of the liquid, causing it to evaporate. In the same way that your skin is cooled as sweat evaporates, so the evaporation of the refrigerant inside the copper tubes cools the air. You'll notice that the back of your fridge is hot – this is where all the heat ends up: it is released as the refrigerant is squeezed back into a liquid by the pump.

 

Scientists at Arizona State University have shown that night-time temperatures are increased by more than 1C in urban areas solely as a result of air conditioning. That doesn't sound a lot, but is in fact equivalent to the global warming that has happened in the past 100 years. Air conditioning on this scale in the cities of Qatar would also consume a huge amount of electricity, which will be a serious challenge for renewable energy systems to provide."

A look inside Jeff Bezos’ two pizza rule and what you can learn from it.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"One former executive recalled that, at an offsite retreat where some managers suggested that employees should start communicating more with each other, Mr. Bezos stood up and declared, “No, communication is terrible!” He wanted a decentralized, even disorganized company where independent ideas would prevail over groupthink".

"According to Bezos, the ideal is the “two pizza team:” if a team couldn’t be fed with two pizzas, it was too big."
