Innovation is never a neutral quantity. Technologies and artifacts are shaped by the values, priorities, and assumptions of their developers, and often their users as well. Of course, many technologies are designed or refined with particular goals in mind, but here I am referring to a different and less deliberate shaping process, through which artifacts come to reflect and reproduce beliefs about the types of functions and ways of living and working that are important.

Julie Cohen, What is privacy for

How can an organization encourage innovative ideas and allow them to move through the system? The answer is that you need to create little pockets of chaos within the larger organization.

“I believe you have to be willing to be misunderstood if you’re going to innovate.”

“Even well-meaning gatekeepers slow innovation. When a platform is self service, even the improbable ideas can get tried because there’s no expert gatekeeper ready to say ‘that will never work!’”

Twitter’s ad rates continue falling, down 18% last quarter - Quartz
User engagement down, as people defect to messaging apps. Is there some reason that Twitter hasn’t made its direct messaging function into a messaging app? And please add group messaging, too. Why is Twitter so slow at innovating?

Good design accelerates the adoption of new ideas.

One doesn’t discover new lands without consenting to lose sight, for a very long time, of the shore.

Andre Gide

If you want a culture of innovation, there are certain conditions for it. The culture of an organization is about habits and habitats—creating a habitat where people feel their ideas are welcomed, empowered and rewarded, and creating a physical environment that develops new ideas.

Introducing Rip Cord

Rip Cord is a simple improvement upon the classic roll of packaging tape. This tape has a small string running down the center of the tape. The user pulls the string to separate the tape in half. This makes opening boxes a cinch, as there is no longer a need for scissors, knives, or keys. The packaging tape dispenser has a sharp edge with which to cut the tape, this edge is shaped such that the tape is cut to provide a tab at the center. This tape makes it easy for users to locate and lift the string.

I love seeing innovations that will — in a small way — make the world better for everyone, like rip cord.

'Thinking outside the box' just means 'exploring an idea's weak ties'.
