Innovation is not the same as invention.

Many people conflate innovating with inventing. While there are similarities, we think of innovation as a way to find more appealing ways to do or make things that already exist, and invention as the creation of something that never existed before.

Sometimes we want to make things not because they can be ‘validated’

Sometimes we want to make things not because they can be ‘validated’ quickly, but simply because we want to turn our mind’s vision into a reality.

The lawlessness of ‘sharing economy’ corporates

these (…) companies claim they are striking a blow against regulations they consider “out-of-date” or “anti-innovation”. Their major innovation, however, is strategic and manipulative, and it’s meant to undermine local needs and effective governance.

Your empty email account means nothing

Gleefully declaring that you’ve reached ‘inbox zero’ on social media, is nothing. It’s a hollow boast. It doesn’t mean you’re efficient or handling your work well. It doesn’t mean you’ve replied to what needs to be replied to or removed the mosquitos of mail from your daily duties.

The Baader-Meinhof phenomenon.

It’s the perception of discovering something new — a car, a name, a word you’ve never seen or heard before — and then, amazingly, seeing it all over the place soon after you discover it.

De Uber-economie en de rechten van werknemers

(De) ‘aan­vraag­e­co­no­mie’ creëert span­nen­de nieu­we mo­ge­lijk­he­den en weekt nieu­we vor­men van in­no­va­tie los. Maar dat geeft ook aan­lei­ding tot vra­gen over de be­scher­ming van wer­ken­de men­sen en over wat in de toe­komst een goede job zal zijn.’

Why technology is not a synonym for innovation – The Globe and Mail

(…) the group seemed to consider “technology” a synonym for innovation. But you don’t need technology to innovate. True innovation is about doing something new: developing better processes or bringing improved products and services to market. Innovation can be the newest technology, or just a new idea (…). Conversely, much of technology today is far from innovative

If the leader is alone

Some questioned the introduction of the motorhome even before the UCI banned it, wondering if it would threaten the bond and camaraderie among riders.
