The MVP process then and now

The MVP process strikes us as attractive not only because bits make it feasible, but also because we've come to believe that a technology that isn't changing every six months is failing. Yet, in the almost 20 years it took Ford to introduce a new model, 15 million Model T's had been sold. And during that entire stretch, never once did Henry Ford put on a black turtleneck and tease an audience with what would be new next month.Read More >>

The Future of the Future

The Future of the Future

How to create an innovative future by today’s thoughts and actions.

From the real to the virtual and back

In previous articles, we've shown that intangible asset values typically outweigh their tangible counterparts by about four to one. We don't expect this ratio to flip anytime soon. But those crusty old tangibles have been staging a comeback. The new technology of 3-D printing is getting help from a few "old-timers" like open source software and collaborative computing.Read More >>

Creating the future through disruptive innovation

Over a decade ago, two predictions stood out: Digital currencies would be in play by 2015, and space tourism would be firmly in place by 2020.Read More >>

Building the world trade center of the future

Topping out at a symbolic 1,776 feet, the new World Trade Center (WTC) tower in New York City is a bold statement of economic resilience and mankind's ability to look to the future.Read More >>

Universal, federated or unified search in the land of information silos

You talk to your mobile phone to search, don't you? My wife, who is no technology lover, does. Our 75-year-old neighbor thinks Siri, Apple's voice search system, is a real person. Ask a question on a voice search-equipped Android phone, and you can get specific driving directions to the closest pizza parlor or gas station. The future has arrived—or has it?
