The Long Nose of Innovation

人机交互开山鼻祖级大牛、微软研究院首席研究员 Bill Buxton 发表于 2008 年的经典文章。创新固然重要,但漫长的改进、最终产业化/商业化的过程至少同等重要。

"An idea may well start with an invention, but the bulk of the work and creativity is in that idea's augmentation and refinement. The newer the idea, the coarser the granularity of most analysis, and the more likely people are to say, "oh, that's just like X" or "that's been done before," without any appreciation for how much work and innovation is involved in taking an idea from concept to wide practice."
