We at Sun pride ourselves on a culture of innovation, but we certainly don’t have a corner on the innovation market. A good friend of mine, Lon Safko, is a serial entrepreneur and perhaps the most innovative person I know. I just listened to a recording of a talk entitled “The American Inventor” Lon gave to the Society of American Archivists on behalf of the Smithsonian Institution. In this 16-minute podcast, he outlines the process of innovation and gives a couple of examples of innovation in this own career. Great food for thought.

Plus, you can download one of his patented paper models for free!

    A good book to read, related to this post, is "The Innovator’s Dilemma"
