True Innovation

In reading Jon Gertner's most enlightening and eloquent piece on Bell Labs titled True Innovation, a telling quote says it all regarding what true innovation really means and how it impacts society. 

Read Gertner"s piece, you will not be disappointed. In retrospect, it reminds me of The Mythical Man Month, Fred Brooks captivating and brilliant book articulating how innovation comes about, in this case, in software engineering, but is applicable to every endeavor known to man requiring planning, communication and an atmosphere of creativity in order for said endeavor to succeed.
