The Spark of Invention - TIME

The Spark of Invention - TIME | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Be grateful you never had to take a nap with Thomas Edison. It’s not like Edison slept all that much; by his own account he was good for four, maybe five, hours a night, setting aside at least 18 per day for work. That made sense. If you’re going to leave the world a list of inventions that includes the lightbulb, the movie camera, the cylinder phonograph, the disc phonograph, advanced fluoro­scopy, a commercial stock ticker, a vote tabulator and more, you’d best put in a long day.

Wikinomics – Hothouse innovation redux: The world “upside down”

Wikinomics – Hothouse innovation redux: The world “upside down” | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Recently The Economist released a feature report on how innovation in emerging markets may be eclipsing innovation in North America. The report, The world turned upside down (click “Buy PDF” for a complimentary copy courtesy of BASF) reinforces the fact that globalization and disruptive innovation is no longer something that is “driven by the West and imposed on the rest.” The notion that we in the West are the harbingers of all things new and advanced and that “developing” markets are cheap sources of labor and less mature audiences for low-cost, dumbed-down versions of our products and services is false. In response to the question, “Why are countries that were until recently associated with cheap hands now becoming leaders in innovation?” The Economist answers, “The most obvious reason is that the local companies are dreaming bigger dreams.” Of course, the real answer is far more complex.

Open Hardware to Explore Oceans and fuel innovation

Open Hardware to Explore Oceans and fuel innovation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Technology has always been innovated based on other people's successes, from the discovery that the earth was round, to the invention of the telephone, steam engine or airplane. There are many examples of successful businesses openly sharing software, such as Mozilla and Linux, but the rise of the Open Hardware trend is just beginning. The Open Hardware definition states that it is any hardware whose documentation is made publicly available for others to use, modify, and distribute. This growing trend is founded in the belief that sharing ideas, designs, and methodologies can bring technological innovation and manufacturing mainstream on local and global scales, making it easier to engineer new solutions to complex problems.

Concurring Opinions » Introducing the Talent Wants To Be Free Symposium

Concurring Opinions » Introducing the Talent Wants To Be Free Symposium | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

This week Concurring Opinions is hosting a symposium on Professor Orly Lobel’s book, Talent Wants to be Free: Why We Should Learn to Love Leaks, Raids, and Free Riding. In simplest terms, Professor Lobel takes on some thorny problems in innovation policy debates including whether to lock down talent and ideas or to embrace the movement of people and knowledge. Though these tensions seem easy to understand, the natural desire to keep what one has means arguments to tie up whatever seems to be giving one an advantage creates larger debates about optimal control and outcomes. Professor Lobel’s work tangles with these core ideas and more.

How Big Companies Can Innovate Like Start-Ups - Forbes | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Every public company CEO is under tremendous pressure to increase revenue and profits every quarter.  It’s an exhausting treadmill and nearly impossible to do without innovation and creating new businesses (startups) inside the public company.  But public companies are not architected to create startups or attract and retain entrepreneurs who have a built successful businesses from just an idea.  Thus the reason most public companies grow and innovate by acquisition.

Innovation at the Speed of Apps - LinkedIn Today | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

These are just a few of the many fascinating statistics and technology stories packed into the just-released book by Robert Scoble and Shel Israel, Age of Context: Mobile, Sensors, Data and the Future of Privacy. While my regular Friday Book Share readers know that I’m a real sucker for such “fascinating facts,” Scoble and Israel have also done a decent job of categorizing the five major “forces” driving these technologies: mobile, social, data, sensors and location. Technology is now highly mobile, it empowers us to connect with others in social media, it generates lots of data, much of which comes from sensors, and it often involves specific locations.
