This title isn’t nearly innovative enough April 12, 2014

Posted by mareserinitatis in engineering, research.

I’ve been pondering a question…and asking a few people, as well.

What do you consider innovative?

In particular, I’m wondering if people say it is only innovative to have a new idea that no one has thought of before.  What about a different scenario: would you consider it innovative if you came up with a viable way to make something work when people have already had the idea for a long time but never been able to make it work?  Are only abstractions innovative, or is there innovation in pragmatism?

I have more to say on the topic, but I first want to see what others think.
