Video Interview with Dean Kamen of DEKA Research

I had the privilege of interviewing Dean Kamen of DEKA Research and FIRST fame at the incentive2innovate conference this week at the United Nations in New York City. You can find the video of our conversation here:





I was pleasantly surprised that Dean Kamen draws the same distinction between invention and innovation that I do. We had a great conversation about the challenges of taking a technological invention and overcoming cultural resistance to achieve a true innovation. Dean Kamen spoke about how really important technology inventions take twenty years or longer to be accepted by society.

We also spoke about the importance of efforts like FIRST and of making math and science fun and mysterious for kids, and about how the pace of technological invention is speeding up but potentially the ability and willingness of people to absorb it is slowing down.


Please check out the video and let me know what you think.
