Tolle neue Ausgabe des NYTimes Magazines über Innovation und Futurismus. Kernstück ist wohl ein interaktives Feature 32 Innovations that will change your Tomorrow, außerdem sehr lesenswert: Freaks, Geeks and Microsoft - How Kinect Spawned a Commercial Ecosystem, die Bilderstrecke über das remixte Magazin-Logo.

We tend to rewrite the histories of technological innovation, making myths about a guy who had a great idea that changed the world. In reality, though, innovation isn’t the goal; it’s everything that gets you there. It’s bad financial decisions and blueprints for machines that weren’t built until decades later. It’s the important leaps forward that synthesize lots of ideas, and it’s the belly-up failures that teach us what not to do.
