This Sunday at 11:30am Pacific I’ll be speaking to the Slate Star Codex meetup:
The non-linear model of innovation
Innovation is often described with a “linear” model from discovery to invention to distribution. There is an element of truth in this, but a naive interpretation of the model does not match the reality of science and invention. In this talk, I’ll show the feedback mechanisms between discovery and invention and how they are intertwined, using examples including the transistor at Bell Labs and the career of Louis Pasteur.
