In this hour, if we’re going to talk about invention in the US we need to talk with Nathan Myrhvold. He was Microsoft’s first Chief Technology Officer. He holds 17 patents with Microsoft and 117 with his company Intellectual Ventures. But he’s not just a billionaire tech-nerd. He’s also explored the world’s volcanoes. Studied penguin digestion. Found several T Rexes. Built a section of Babbage’s Difference Engine. He’s even the World Barbecue Grand Champion. Anne Strainchamps caught up with Myhrvold to talk about inventing and his six-volume, 2400-page, 52 pound cookbook called Modernist Cuisine. Next, why has America stopped inventing? That’s the provocative title of a book by Darin Gibby. Gibby’s a patent lawyer and points out that Americans invent less than half of what we did a century ago. Half. Why? Are we less creative then we were 100 years ago? Gibby says the problem lies in one place and one place only – The US Patent system. He tells Anne Strainchamps the current system has got to go. Then, in a recent interview with Wired magazine Bill Gates said that if he were a teenager today, he would not be into computing, he’d be hacking biology. He said, ´´If you want to change the world in some big way, that’s where you start – biological molecules.” Hacking biology, huh? Well, it’s not science fiction anymore. Welcome to the 21st Centrury and the Biopunk Movement where biohacking and kitchen table biotech are the norm. Steve Paulson sat down with journalist Marcus Wohlsen, author of Biopunk, to find out more about these DIY bioengineers. Like, is this legal?After that, don´t ask Anna Dietrich if she invented a car that can fly. No one can do that she says. She did, however, invent a plane that can drive. It’s called the Transition. This car/plane or plane/car, whatever you call it, was dreamed up over beers with a bunch of fellow MIT students. The Transition’s recent introduction... 1. Language: English.

The Invention of Science

We live in a world made by science. How and when did this happen? This book tells the story of the extraordinary intellectual and cultural revolution that gave birth to modern science, and mounts a major challenge to the prevailing orthodoxy of its history. Before 1492 it was assumed that all significant knowledge was already available; there was no concept of progress; people looked for understanding to the past not the future. This book argues that the discovery of America demonstrated that new knowledge was possible: indeed it introduced the very concept of ´discovery´, and opened the way to the invention of science. The first crucial discovery was Tycho Brahe´s nova of 1572: proof that there could be change in the heavens. The telescope (1610) rendered the old astronomy obsolete. Torricelli´s experiment with the vacuum (1643) led directly to the triumph of the experimental method in the Royal Society of Boyle and Newton. By 1750 Newtonianism was being celebrated throughout Europe. The new science did not consist simply of new discoveries, or new methods. It relied on a new understanding of what knowledge might be, and with this came a new language: discovery, progress, facts, experiments, hypotheses, theories, laws of nature - almost all these terms existed before 1492, but their meanings were radically transformed so they became tools with which to think scientifically. We all now speak this language of science, which was invented during the Scientific Revolution. The new culture had its martyrs (Bruno, Galileo), its heroes (Kepler, Boyle), its propagandists (Voltaire, Diderot), and its patient labourers (Gilbert, Hooke). It led to a new rationalism, killing off alchemy, astrology, and belief in witchcraft. It led to the invention of the steam engine and to the first Industrial Revolution. David Wootton´s landmark book changes our understanding of how this great transformation came about, and of what science is.

The classic study of the creative process from the bestselling author of Flow Creativity is about capturing those moments that make life worth living. Legendary psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (´´The leading researcher into ´flow states.´´´ - Newsweek) reveals what leads to these moments-be it the excitement of the artist at the easel or the scientist in the lab-so that this knowledge can be used to enrich people´s lives. Drawing on nearly one hundred interviews with exceptional people, from biologists and physicists, to politicians and business leaders, to poets and artists, as well as his thirty years of research on the subject, Csikszentmihalyi uses his famous flow theory to explore the creative process. He discusses such ideas as why creative individuals are often seen as selfish and arrogant, and why the ´´tortured genius´´ is largely a myth. Most important, he explains why creativity needs to be cultivated and is necessary for the future of our country, if not the world.

Men of Invention and Industry (eBook, PDF)

Renowned Scottish author, reformer and editor, Samuel Smiles wrote series of biographies of men who achieved success through hard work. He preached the virtues of hard work and industry through his work. A detailed history of some of the great inventors and inventions of the world. Contents Include Phineas Pett : Begginers of English Shipbuilding Francis Pettit Smith : Practical Introducer of the Screw Propeller John Harrison : Inventer of the Marine Chronometer John Lombe : Introducer of the Silk Industry into England William Murdock Interesting writing from 1884 about men who brought their invention to the public within England, Ireland and Scotland. It reads like chapters in an encyclopedia, not like something meant to be sequential chapters - generally. It all begins with shipbuilding and the advantages of the screw propeller, the obstacles the inventor had to overcome - waves damaging to canals, for example. Then are the chapters devoted to the invention of the printing press, several chapters, all discussing the individual inventors and their difficulties and the respective invention. There is, for example, the exiled German Frederick Koenig, who saw others make capital out of his work and who then moved back to Germany and became successful in Bavaria. This chapter is followed by one discussing ´´The Walters of The Times,´´ again dealing with printing presses but portraying the various Walters and their contributions to the ´´Industry of Britain.´´ There is also a discussion of the latitude/longitude problems and how John Harrison was able to solve it. And then, not to be forgotten, there is Harland of Belfast. All a little disparate, although interesting. Not to be read as as chapters in a book.
