      Hey, I’ve heard of them! 🙃

      How do you differentiate emergent innovators? For example, is a design lab like Ideo, which innovated the computer mouse, equal to or above/below the Gates Foundation?

    • I struggled with that one a bit but in the end whether the tech comes from a kid on the streets or a billionaire, if it breaks the status quo and convention to help move things forward it fits the bill to me. What do you think?

    • I would agree with your assessment. I think it’s more useful to focus on who or what is an emergent innovator than try to assign a relative ranking of their impact on society.
