Innovation That Matters, easy to say, not so easy to define… What matters in life is deeply subjective and context dependent. How about Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and the list below as a starting point?

  • Happiness
  • Physical and mental health
  • Mental stimulation
  • Time for friends and family
  • General quality of life
  • Leisure time for sports and activities
  • Privacy
  • Security
  • Convenience and ease of use
  • Creativity

Clearly innovation generally, and technology specifically, has revolutionized how we live, work and play over the past generation, and all indications are that the pace of change is accelerating.

On this site we will be exploring the impact of technical innovations on our lives: the good, the bad and the ugly. I hope you enjoy the ride!
