uneven

Engineers without Fears

You'd be better off looking in Bangladesh than Wall Street. The future is already here - it is just unevenly distributed.- William Gibson I've been pondering Sean & Ellen's discussion around explicit, tacit & latent needs. It tied to some thinking I've been doing around innovation. We expect innovation to come from high-tech research labs because that's where the dollars and the brains are. But that's fundamentally wrong. Innovation comes from where the challenges are.

Chris Corrigan

But, if you found yourself teleported to rural Bangladesh and you now had to make a living as a rice farmer, do you think your current language and skill set would be applicable, if only you applied yourself harder? Just off a call with a potential client today and we were scoping out some of the work that we might do together, with a small organization facing unprecedented change.

whose innovation is it anyway?

Engineers without Fears

And I said something along the lines of "You know that Grameen bank has been doing microfinance in Bangladesh for over 30 years?" So I was talking to a dude at one of Australia's major banks. And he was enthusing about P2P lending (Kiva, Zopa, Prosper). He hadn't. Whilst P2P lending and microfinance are not identical, there are significant similarities. I had a brief Skype conversation this evening with Sriram Reddy from Infoxchange and Engineers Without Borders.

Oil lamp incubators were developed by women in Bangladesh. One of my jobs a few weeks ago was to facilitate sessions at the Rome Share Fair. This included making sure there was some sort of blog post or notes from each session. Well, I fell behind after one session.

I spent the week in Dhaka, Bangladesh, working with a client on how to use their knowledge about their customers to improve their customers’ journeys. And to the realisation that Singapore could very well have ended up like Bangladesh – it had its moments in the late 1950s and early 1960s when it could have tipped that way.
