David James: In 1997 you published an article on innovation I wrote in the BRW. I thought about this recently and reread it. Odd but it could published today without losing anything. I ended up publishing 250 articles on innovation, mostly overseas. I find the quality of writing here is quite weak. There seems to be a lack of deep knowledge from which to create insights. I often find errors as people have not read the original work (such as, Applied Imagination 1953 to truly understand brainstorming). If you are ever looking for a depth piece on the shallowness of innovation or similar themes, let me know.
