Free download The Innovators: How a Group of Inventors, Hackers, Geniuses and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution Walter Isaacson à 2 Read Download ã PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free à Walter Isaacson Following his blockbuster biography of Steve Jobs Walter Isaacson’s New York Times bestselling and critically acclaimed The Innovators is a “riveting propulsive and at times deeply moving” The Atlantic story of the people who created the computer and the InternetWhat were the talents that allowed certain inventors and entrepreneurs to turn their visionary ideas into disruptive realities What led to their creative leaps Why did some succeed and others. Note added 23 Feb 2017 This seems to have a lot of likes but I want to make sure that people understand that my perspective is a bit specialized The book is lively and very interesting If you want to read a provocative and detailed story of innovation this is a great choice I think the full story reuires some extra reading which I note in the review The book has its limitations but it s still a good readRegrettably I can t give this a great reviewIn part it depends on what you want If you want a history of innovation from the point of view of the winners the people who created the technology we use today then this book might be for youBut I would strongly recommend that you read some other books Katie Hafner s When Wizards Stay Up Late John Markoff s What the Dormouse Said Steven Levy s HackersIsaacson hits all of the main highlights of the development of digital technology from Ada Lovelace to Google In terms of new contributions his treatment of Lovelace is much broader than what one normally gets and he s very good on the women who worked as programmers for Eniac and the like That s good Additionally there is new interview material that provides details that I haven t seen elsewhere For instance the book notes that both parents of Tim Berners Lee inventor of the web were computer programmers and that TBL was an electronics nerd as a kid The uotes from people like the founders of Google are a bit looser than usual I like thatYet there are three big problems here1 First off this is a history of the victors and its extremely presentist in that it privileges things that are our technology today Thus people like Jef Raskin and Ted Nelson are essentially buried Yes there are a few words on Nelson but he deserves like 10 pages and Raskin gets one mention Raskin was the true originator of the Mac he deserves way credit Another example Gopher The Gopher protocol which predates the web was extremely important and arguably would have been useful for certain kinds of information browsing Yet another thing that is scanted as in so many histories that involve computer mediated communication is the depth of social sharing on time sharing systems it was a big deal and seems to be just outside the view of most historians I think Isaacson s canvas is large and this would have complicated his story2 The discussion of bidirectional information transfer is very weak It comes up on p 300 with regard to Lee Felsenstein and the free speech movement People like Felsenstein thought computer networks would change society because they might provide for broadcast from the citizen Despite the advent of blogs twitter etc the dominant model has been publication as Isaacson rightly points out from his personal experience editing Time online 420 422 But I think Isaacson makes a big mistake to not talk at significantly greater length about how bidirectionality was lost in the early history of the network To be sure he does get into the blogging phenomenon but it is weak because so focused on a single individual Justin Hall Anyway the concern isn t even so much about individuals contributing content but the very structure of the Internet and the policing of uploads for example your broadband provider gives you a lot less data uota for upload than download Obviously the missing figure here is Nicholas Negroponte who long advocated for true bidirectionally for communication his key case was always video out of the home so grandparents could easily send movies to their kids A similar gap to the lack of spadework to uncover the deeper interest in bidirectionally is the discussion of how MosaicNetscape never had a decent editor that might provide for easily composing web pages from the browser see p 418 This wasn t just an issue for the Berners Lee It was a howl coming from the early adopters of browsers The lack of such editors also points out limitations in the standards track and how RFCs cannot really turn the industry3 Finally the biggest argument in the book That innovation comes from teams and groups not from individuals 479 488 and elsewhere The ualifiers for this claim are huge The biggie is that he means successful innovation ie innovation that has gone mainstream Clearly there were plenty of team innovations that weren t absorbed by the marketplace Shouldn t we then acknowledge how teams can fail Additionally what is meant by teams and groups isn t solid Isaacson admits as much when disrupting his own claim by outlining three ways that teams were put together in the digital age 482 Sorry you can t have your lumping claim and then at the end of the book break it down You can make the claim about three modalities of team innovation at the beginning of the book and then show it But pulling this canard out at the end of the book is just not fairIn sum if this is the only book you re going to read it s OK But the real story is bigger and Isaacson s take on all this is slanted and focused way too much on the technology we have rather than the technologies we might have I don t think asking for that is asking for a different book either because Isaacson is interested enough in the losers to mention them His book would have been immensely richer by giving them their due to the tune of perhaps 50 additional pages over the whole book

This book is going to be huge since it functions not only as a history of the computer and the internet but as a treatise on innovation and collaboration I can imagine that it will be reuired reading for all kinds of people working in all varieties of business Unlike his bio of Steve Jobs which was important as immediate history but was also understandably rushed Isaacson s new book reads like a labor of love and is much better written focused than Jobs and is thought provoking on a lot of different levels I have already told a half dozen people I work with at a Fortune 500 financial services company that this book should be reuired reading when it comes out in OctoberRarely have a I read an ARC and felt so frustrated because I have to wait for the book to come out so there are other readers with whom I can discuss it

The basic premise of this book is that innovators and inventors do not create new concepts solo They are almost always collaborators But there is not a surplus of collaboration described in this book This was a fun entertaining book to read In the beginning of the book the innovators were described in detail in historical order But as the chronology approached the present day less and less space was devoted to individual innovators and to the innovations I really enjoyed an earlier book by Isaacson Benjamin Franklin An American Life In that book I really was able to understand the man and his accomplishments However this book covers too much ground and ends up being less than satisfying I ended up understanding the life of the first personality covered in the book Ada Lovelace but not much else Perhaps if the author had not tried to cover every single person he considers to be an innovator and to go into depth about the most interesting biographies it might have been better
