In this Ted Talk, Johnson explore the science of where ideas come from. They may seem like “eureka” moments—think back to our conversation last week with Stephen Colbert and Neil deGrasse Tyson—but Johnson argues that they are part of a larger process of innovation rather than discovery. Innovation is the process of taking the abstract and making something that can work in the real world. Innovation is the process of creating or making (some)thing that exists in the everyday world as we know it. For instance, around the world in ancient times, many different peoples who had no knowledge of each other figured out ways to fish and hunt by building tools to make the work easier. Our ancient ancestors eventually decided to create shelter beyond convenient caves or tress cover. Fast forward and we crea Innovationted cathedrals and palaces, built ships and cannons, discovered plants that could be used to cure illness. More recently, most of us carry around a hand-sized box that contains a universe of knowledge and applications that seem to dissolve space and time. As Johnson points out in this talk, collaboration rather than isolation is key to innovation.
