Conversation about where technology and innovation come from

Innovating is about more than just having the idea yourself; you also have to bring everyone else to where your idea is. And that becomes really difficult if you’re too many steps ahead….

I’ve actually gone a bit further and come to see technology as an alternative great story, as a different source for understanding where we are in the cosmos. I think technology is something that can give meaning to our lives, particularly in a secular world.

A great conversation about innovation and technology between Kevin Kelly and Steven Johnson (and a fantastic illustration too.)  Kelly’s new book has just come out in the US, and I’ll be getting it when it becomes available in the UK.
