What is innovation?

May 11, 2009

I guess I ought to start this discussion thread by establishing what I mean by innovation. I actually find the wiki definition to be pretty close “The term innovation means a new way of doing something. It may refer to incremental, radical, and revolutionary changes in thinking, products, processes, or organizations. A distinction is typically made between invention, an idea made manifest, and innovation, ideas applied successfully. In many fields, something new must be substantially different to be innovative, not an insignificant change, e.g., in the arts, economics, business and government policy. In economics the change must increase value, customer value, or producer value. The goal of innovation is positive change, to make someone or something better.”

Hello world!

May 9, 2009

I’ve always enjoyed doing innovative projects – it brings out the creative side of me. I developed the worlds’ first commercial application of Windows 95 – A 3D Virtual Bank branch called Interact – that helpedĀ customers educate themselves about financial products before approaching a sales person. I then went on to invent an IFA in a box (more about that later). I am now looking for new opportunities to innovate and would invite anyone with an innovative idea or product reach out to me. I am already helping a firm calledĀ ValidSoft (who have a product that stops credit card fraud using patented technology) find new customers for their product.
