The Wisdom of Woz: Innovation ain’t no bear hug….

From his memoir iWoz, Steve Wozniak offers this bit of advice to future innovators:

“Most inventors and engineers I’ve met are like me — they’re shy and they live in their heads.  They’re almost like artists. In fact, the very best of them are artists. And artists work best alone where they can control an invention’s design without a lot of other people designing it for marketing or some other committee.  I don’t believe anything really revolutionary has been invented by committee.  If you’re that rare engineer who’s an inventor and also an artists, I’m going to give you some advice that might be hard to take.  That advice is: Work alone. You’re going to be best able to design revolutionary products and features if you’re working on your own. Not on a committee. Not on a team.”
