"New Rules of Creativity"
OPEN MIND & DISRUPTION
BY DIALOGUE REVIEW BASED ON IDEAS OF VIVEK WADHWA
Much of what is needed has already been created. To innovate for the future, you must be able to see it.
History is no longer a guide to the future. This is how it used to work: once in a blue moon, a major discovery was made, or else something transformative was invented, and the human existence advanced on the back of it, in one giant leap. Think of the effect the discovery of fire had. Winters became tolerable. Food could be cooked and, thus, rid of many poisons. Night times became active. Lives rapidly lengthened. Agriculture helped us feed our rapidly growing, maturing population. General nutrition levels rocketed. Lives became healthier and happier. The invention of sails t riggered international travel. Powered flight made it exponentially quicker. Lives become wider; richer. Yet if we saw just one such milestone in our lifetime we were among the lucky spectators of history. The big difference in the digital age is that we see one milestone almost every year. This article is based on ideas in Vivek’s book (coauthored with Alex Salkever) "The Driver in the Driverless Car: How Our Technology Choices Will Create the Future."
