"Most of the things that differ from the past will shortly die. The more they differ, the sooner they will die."

@SimonDeDeo of SFI & @CarnegieMellon on the linear correlation of #novelty & #transience - aka, "Why you mostly listen to the same songs over and over" - at #CSSS19:
"It's true that new things die. It's also true that is you want to be very very big, be new."

@SimonDeDeo of SFI & @CarnegieMellon on successful #novelty & hopeful #monsters in #evolution, #innovation, & #investment - aka, "Either be really boring, or be Beethoven" - at #CSSS19:
"#Revolutions are not just about ideas, they're about #information management. You can't just run a #revolution in a seminar room."

"The stranger your speech is, the more likely people are to just nod & move on."

A fantastic thread on specific examples of breeding applicable interdisciplinarity.

In fact, I think we can go further, and designers can help.
There's a trend here.

In a lot of different environments, designers are realizing there's useful and powerful theories, insights, and communities from disciplines they never considered; and there happens to be a reactionary clash from the communities who live in that space.
We have an opportunity here.

Sometimes that clash is valuable, because it offers space for people to acknowledge, voice, and catalyze a community to make their knowledge known.

But sometimes, we can connect without friction, and towards a collective goal.

THREAD: DISABILITY INCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENT (DID)
- RESEARCH & INNOVATION
@RClarkeDFID tweeted this week about @LSHTM innovation to help people with disabilities access quality eye-tests (huge unmet need).

Want more on @DFID_Research 's new work..?

DFID has long supported DID research - starting long before DFID was DFID.

If you like your research methods ‘old skool’ head back to 2001 (SocSci&Med) for ODA-funded research on Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) in urban India in '90s.... bit.ly/2wGKCj2 2/14
....ancient history but focused on a pressing need to evaluate <quality> & <effectiveness> of DID services (e.g. compare goals of service users with those of providers; & whether goals were met).

In 2019... Quality/Measurement/Effectiveness are still pressing questions...

Great thread. Parts of it I agree with, others make me concerned.

Let’s unpack.
Clearly, the point of the discussion offers an opportunity to widen the tech pipeline; to ensure accomplished black CS HBCU students get their foot in the door. Critical. Essential.
However, it also offers a question that @peterme brought up: so, is Stanford then just an expensive trade school?

In April, the CIA declassified this image of the first-ever map drawn by a computer. cdn.muckrock.com/foia_files/201… (h/t @simongerman600 & @NatSecGeek)

It was generated in January 1967 and the preceding years are chock-full of gems on #innovation, #dataviz & #intelligence. Thread.
2. The 1960s bred the perfect storm for tech-enabled transformation at the CIA. A holy trinity for #defenceinnovation? Technology + necessity + political will seems like a pretty good recipe. But organisational barriers make it less straightforward.
3. CIA maps were hardly used during the Korean War, gave a “psychological boost” to the state of intel during Cuban Missile Crisis, & were relied upon in Vietnam. Automated mapping from the late 1960s helped improve accuracy & reduce clutter, building on other tech breakthroughs,

How should/would a #Georgist think about intellectual property (rights)?

From one perspective, it's impossible to own an idea/thoughts. Contemporary IP ownership is primarily based around (very generous & lengthy) government monopoly protections.
A fundamental argument for these protections are to encourage #Innovation. But how much do IP protections, alone, (+) innovation?
Even if IP protections help, there has to be a point of diminishing returns. At some point, IP protections discourage others from improving on the 'original work'.

On defining #creativity @rexjung :

Distinct from #intelligence – a superhighway; #creativity as a slow meandering process down dirt road / side road

Must be both #novel and @useful – beyond simple #utility – something #new within a social context. Unexpected links ✨🤓✨

Ready for a great discussion: "Beyond #DCP: Long Term #Water #Sustainability for the #ColoradoRiver Basin" thanks to @DCDC_ASU
.@PHXWaterAdvisor says #DCP did nothing to address the structural deficit built into the #ColoradoRiver compact. That needs to be key to next round of negotiations starting next year.
Solutions focusing only on the biggest water consumer in #Arizona - agriculture - are not adequate to solve the bigger issue, according to Chelsea McGuire with the @azfb

I'm a few years behind the curve; y'all still do follow trains?

Well, I'm starting one. Let's do one about #equitydesign.

@albanvillamil asked if I knew people, places, and tools for equity and design, and I wanted everyone to know everyone.

Spread the word! (1/million)
That being said, like equity work, this isn't (and arguably can't be) the definitive

Equity is a verb, like @_ChristineOrtiz says, so my hope is this is only the beginning.
I tried to get everyone's resources and descriptions correctly, but if there's anything wrong, feel free to correct me! (Crit's in our blood, right?)

Feel free to add, amend, include, and let's get to know each other. Cool? Cool.

#RM_Ott19 last panel @research_money on whole-of-govt initiatives to support #innovation. Moderated by @ChristineTrautt @CollegeCan, w/ Rob Wright ADM of @PSPC_SPAC, Wayne Moore @DFO_MPO, @NancyHamzawi ADM @environmentca, Andrea Johnston @ISED_CA, Gilles Saindon @AAFC_Canada
#RM_Ott19 RW says @PSPC_SPAC is looking beyond the usual vertical approach of governments, taking a more partnership view to drive success. WM @DFO_Science adds that bar has been set high for collab across departments, to get other ministers' / ADM's input and advice
#RM_Ott19 AJ @ISED_CA likes the "partnership" view, which aligns well with innovation portfolio of ISED. The federal family can be engaged in partnerships in one swoop (e.g. in Clean Growth Hub) rather than forcing external partners to reach out to depts separately

Il existe en France un verger très particulier et assez unique, puisqu’il est
planté… en rond. Vous trouvez ça farfelu ? Pourtant, ça ne l’est pas du tout. #agriculture #recherche #arboriculture #innovation #agroécologie

Thread ⬇️
Ce verger expérimental est situé au domaine de Gotheron dans la Drôme, à l’@Inra_France @Inra_PACA. Il a été conçu avec pas mal de matière grise : chercheurs, agronomes, conseillers et techniciens de chambre et d’organisations de producteurs, et bien sûr aussi des arboriculteurs.
L’objectif de l’équipe de recherche est de créer un espace de production dans lequel la conduite des cultures se fait sans AUCUN traitement phytosanitaire. Même pas un traitement de produit dit de biocontrôle ou autorisé en Agriculture Biologique, RIEN.

👁️👍📺 documentary, not just about athletes, but really about *creativity* > how we enable OR stifle it

I assumed sports performance was all about physique & formal training, but this doc' tells a different story: yes, physique matters, but what sets apart the extraordinary from the good is... loving the sport, creativity, wisdom, going against convention.
I wasn't going to rely on speed and power. That wasn't going to get me to the next level. What got me to the next level was my wisdom and vision on the ice.

1/ Organisations need generalist advisers who are not attached to their experience and expertise. Fresh eyes + deep understanding of individuals across cultural divides will mark emerging consulting paradigms. This will put pressure on business schools.
2/ In the words of @davidsrose "All companies designed to succeed in the 20th century are doomed to fail in the 21st century."

Several reasons -

The new world is digital. The new generation is digital. Change is on an accelerating curve. Learning is not. #futureofwork
@davidsrose 3/ Companies are led by people trained on industrial age methods by industrial age academics in industrial age institutions. Leadership is about growing existing portfolios by scaling. #Innovation means disrupting existing mindsets and methods. This is new. #futureofwork

Gli esperti lo ripetono ormai da diversi anni. Con un’alimentazione sana si prevengono fattori di rischio importanti come il sovrappeso e l’obesità. Una dieta povera dal punto di vista nutrizionale, invece, può facilitare lo sviluppo di diverse neoplasie.

Apple has a section of their website answering questions doctors may have regarding their latest #ECG technology. Where are the answers to the REAL questions #patients want to know about? For example, if I get an alert:

#AppleWatch #digitaltech #wearables #PatientAdvocacy
2) when do I confidently ignore, act upon, or wait to make actionable decisions about alerts I’ve received? #AppleWatch #digitaltech #digitalhealth #wearables #Innovation #PatientAdvocacy #healthcare #medtwitter
