Innovation not always a good thing (900 kb MP3)

As noted, Audrey Watters covered much of the history of innovation in her excellent talk at CNIE two days earlier. I reference the work of Benoît Godin, particularly “καινοτομία: An Old Word for a New World, or, The De-Contestation of a Political and Contested Concept” available at csiic.ca.

Disruption (1.9 MB MP3)

Again, Audrey covered this stuff very well in her talk so I cut this part short. I would also point to her “Myth and Millennialism of Disruptive Innovation” and “A Future with Only Ten Universities”. I refer to Dan Carlin’s wonderful podcast Hardcore History, and you can still download his epic series on the Mongols.

This section samples Bruce Sterling’s 2013 SXSW closing address. And listening here I realize I drew a lot of the framing and language for the “everything is worse” riff from Sterling as well.

The web we lost (2.7 MB MP3)

This section draws heavily on Anil Dash’s “The Web We Lost”. (He followed it up with “Rebuilding the Web We Lost”.) I read from Tony Hirst’s “Innovation’s End”. I wrote about the travails of RSS somewhat recently.

The NSA/Snowden revelations open up a huge rabbit hole only alluded to here, but if you think Canada is not complicit in pervasive online spying, and have never heard of “Five Eyes”, maybe start here. And then keep going.

A Culture of Innovation from umwnewmedia on Vimeo.

…a common value system that we are all working towards to make the future of education as accessible and equitably distributed as possible, while at the same time maintaining the humane and interpersonal dimension of learning that makes the whole enterprise meaningful—serial innovation is a mission not a happy accident.
