Almost earshot distance from Googleplex and NASA’s Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley, the man in charge of information innovation at the Defense Advance Research Projects implored technology researchers to actually make things and publish their failures.
At the Computer History Museum this week, Dan Kaufman discussed the potential and pitfalls of crowdsourcing, the distinction between invention and innovation, and how to stay ahead while businesses are stockpiling intellectual property in preparation for patent wars.

This is a mind bender, every time I look at this my imagination runs wild. Computer chips have kept up with Moore’s Law and performance has improved year over year for decades, but so has the energy consumption, which has dropped significantly over the years. Would be cool if compute devices could be powered by light, friction from your pocket or finger tapping.
