Innovation and the environment

  1. 1. Where Good Ideas Come FromSteven Johnson<br />Innovation and the Environment<br />Chelsea Mella<br />
  2. 2. Could location effect the production of good ideas?<br />
  3. 3. Striving for…..<br />creativity<br />innovation<br />better thinking skills <br />
  4. 4. History and Innovation<br />Johnson used history to study instances of innovation and the environments where these ideas were produced.<br />
  5. 5. Patterns in Innovation<br />Environments that encourage creative thoughts and produce good ideas must have certain similarities. <br />
  6. 6. Platform<br />Good ideas are often built upon other good ideas to eventually create great ones. Time has changed the process in which we build off of a platform.<br />
  7. 7. Collision of Ideas<br />
  8. 8. Are We Distracted?<br />or connected?<br />
  9. 9. Most people believe….<br />multitasking = less innovative ideas<br />
  10. 10. But these “distractions” could connect us to pieces of information that are vital to our ideas.<br />
  11. 11. Ideas Rise in Crowds…<br />“The rise in liquid networks is where<br />connection is valued more than protection.<br />So if we want to build environments that<br />generate good ideas—whether those<br />environments are in schools or corporations<br />or governments or our own personal lives<br />we need to keep that history in mind, and<br />not fall back on the easy assumptions that<br />competitive markets are the only reliable<br />source of good ideas.”<br /> -Steve Johnson <br />
  12. 12. What do these spaces have in common?<br />Architecture of Spaces<br />
  13. 13. The Liquid Network<br />Most great ideas are not created alone in the lab.<br />
  14. 14. Goal….<br />To create environments<br />that promote collaboration,<br />innovation, creativity, and<br />that are fertile for good<br />ideas.<br />
  15. 15. What is required?<br />Diversity<br />Expertise<br />Many ideas<br />Range of professions<br />
  16. 16. Eventually Johnson discovered that many<br />instances of innovation in history<br />happened similarly.<br />-Darwin-Incubator-Gutenberg-Lee de Forestand MORE!<br />
  17. 17. Biological Systems<br />
  18. 18. Cities Win!<br />
  19. 19. Finally, Johnson believes that innovative environments share these patterns:<br />The Adjacent possible<br />Liquid Networks<br />The Slow Hunch<br />Serendipity<br />Error<br />Exaptation<br />Platforms<br />
