Innovation is Hard

leave a comment »

Have you ever seen a commercial advertising a product, and you thought to yourself “Oh my gosh, I could’ve thought of that!”. Oh you can? Then why didn’t you? Let me just say, innovation is hard! People who are making these new products for us, in my eyes, are awesome!

Have you ever heard of the Modern Art Period? It was a worldwide movement, starting around 1900, after the invention of the camera. Basically, before this time, artists were painting portraits exactly how they were seen (or as close as possible). When the camera came around, artists were free to create whatever they wanted, as they didn’t have to paint realistically.  This entire movement was what innovation was all about. Like, who the heck would’ve thought of making this (besides Picasso of course):

Pablo Picasso, Three Musicians (1921), Museum of Modern Art.

Now, imagine about 100 years of art like this! Amazing! Now, let’s translate this into technology. We went from IBM’s Punched Cards to Spacewar! to C to the Internet to Lisa to the iPad… and so on. Now ask yourself, could you have come up with any of those ideas before they were invented? Maybe, but most people wouldn’t have.

What’s the point I’m trying to make here? Start thinking. Think about how much work went into today’s technology. Do you think you would have thought of it? Of course, you never know. Maybe you will think of the next big thing…
