The New Rules Of Innovation: Bottom-Up Solutions To Top-Down Problems

So writes Vijay Vaitheeswaran in his new book, Need, Speed and Greed: How the New Rules of Innovation Can Transform Businesses, Propel Nations to Greatness and Tame the World’s Most Wicked Problems, out March 13. Vaitheeswaran, a 20-year veteran correspondent for The Economist and adviser to the World Economic Forum, wrote the book, he says, as a way to inspire bottom-up solutions to top-down problems like resource depletion, climate change, and growing income inequality.

We spoke with Vaitheeswaran about the importance of disruptive technologies, social entrepreneurship, and embracing China’s rise. Co.Exist: As you point out in your book, modern humanity has arrived at the first phase of an unprecedented “innovation revolution,” yet many are being left behind. Why is that and what are we gonna do about it? Vijay Vaitheeswaran: First, I think it’s a wonderful time to be alive. I’d put it this way. Peter Krige - peterkrige. The Benefits of Videogames.

The Benefits of Videogames

ET We often think of immersive computer and videogames—like "FarmVille," "Guitar Hero" and "World of Warcraft"—as "escapist," a kind of passive retreat from reality. Many critics consider such games a mind-numbing waste of time, if not a corrupting influence. But the truth about games is very nearly the opposite. In today's society, they consistently fulfill genuine human needs that the real world fails to satisfy. Hundreds of millions of people around the globe are already devoting larger and larger chunks of time to this alternate reality.

Ideas Market Ms. These gamers aren't rejecting reality entirely, of course. Gamers want to know: Where in the real world is the gamer's sense of being fully alive, focused and engaged in every moment? Those who continue to dismiss games as merely escapist entertainment will find themselves at a major disadvantage in the years ahead, as more gamers start to harness this power for real good. —Ms. Treemagotchi.
