How the mighty fall…?

Kodak Prosper S10 inkjet print heads

Oh yes, Kodak missed the oppor­tun­ity to prosper from their innov­a­tions in digit­al ima­ging and the digit­al cam­era. So how come they didn’t see what was com­ing? I guess they were stuck in their old busi­ness mod­el of mak­ing film that had made them a for­tune. When you’re feel­ing com­fort­able with the old and the old still brings in some money, it seems impossible to look up and get a grasp of the long view.

Crowd-Accelerated Innovation

99 x served & 16 x viewedChris Ander­son taught me a new concept: Crowd-Accel­er­ated Innov­a­tion. Three thing are needed for this: a (big) crowd, light (open vis­ib­il­ity) and desire. This is most eas­ily achieved by util­ising web video such as You­Tube, where it is pos­sible to real­ise glob­al innov­a­tion. It...
