Sr-71Innovation has always fascinated me.

How did they do that?

Starting with the F-4s and F-15s that would routinely overfly my house, when I was a child, then Lockheed's SR-71 and the Skunk Works that built it, and Apple Computer and the IIe and then Macintosh.

How did they get so far ahead of the rest of the world?

And into the future?



This project is a record of my attempts to answer those questions and what I've found to be the critical, and in my experience largely unanswered, question.


And, just importantly, How Not.

How Innovation happens and how it dies.

After taking some time off to work as a practicitioner, I've returned to the topic of Innovation with a wiser eye...

I've also started a...

...called, simply, The Innovation Podcast.
