Innovation

Posted in Uncategorized by elisehuard on January 9, 2009

As geek, you’ve got a unique perspective on innovation: you can approach it from two different directions.

  • get familiarity with a technology => imagine new uses for it
  • have an idea => figure out how to do it with existing technology

I wonder if our technical knowledge is actually a constraint, where creativity is concerned. Is thinking out of the box more difficult when you’re very aware of the box ?

    I found that knowledge is never a constraint, but too early focus always sits in the way.

    Introduce chaos and remember that smart innovation is more than else combination -just make the box bigger 🙂
