Without doubt, technological innovations are tremendously important. We also hear about innovation everywhere: books, magazines, white papers, blogs, classrooms, offices, factories, government hearings, and the list goes on. But for all this discussion, do we really have a good understanding of what “innovation” means, and its proper place in society? Is the new always good? What about taking care of and maintaining the things that already work? To decode innovation, Jean Kumagai, senior editor of IEEE Spectrum, will explore these issues in conversation with Lee Vinsel and Andrew L. Russell, historians of technology, and the authors of the new book The Innovation Delusion: How Our Obsession with the New has Disrupted the Work that Matters Most.
