A domain of one’s own response!

while looking over the article, beneath the cobblestones… A domain of one’s own by Audrey Watters, I was immediately hooked by her interpretation of innovation. she believed that “Perhaps because innovation is increasingly defined as something that comes from industry and not the university, something that is fostered in the private sector and not the public.” which got me thinking of the innovations in the past that brilliant minds such as Alexander “Gram” bell (creator of the telephone) and seeing that he was in a private school and not public would show this statement to be true that most innovations that happens wouldn’t come from the public.

I know this standard has been broken time and time again as there have been innovators that stared from the bottom and became top dogs in the industry of their line of work which makes me so ecstatic about my own future! don’t believe me well did you know that Micheal dell from dell computers actually worked as a bus boy before becoming a CEO.  this statement means so much that anyone can make it to the top or change the world despite starting from the bottom.

  1. Audrey has placed this “perhaps” among a number of others that might serve to qualify the statement made by a Google X researcher that they, “do things that would not be possible in academia.” I think she’s really bristling at such blanket statements – disparaging the research done through the university over decades.

    Ultimately it’s difficult to test the “truthiness” of such a statement, but it was said by a former research professor now working in private industry. And the media likes a snappy controversial comment to frame its stories.
