Without doubt, technological innovations are tremendously important. We also hear about innovation everywhere: books, magazines, white papers, blogs, classrooms, offices, factories, government hearings, & the list goes on. But for all this discussion, do we really have a good understanding of what innovation means, & its proper place in society? Is the new always good? What about taking care of & maintaining the things that already work?

To decode innovation, Jean Kumagai, senior editor of IEEE Spectrum, will explore these issues in conversation with Lee Vinsel & Andrew L. Russell, historians of technology, & the authors of the new book The Innovation Delusion: How Our Obsession with the New has Disrupted the Work that Matters Most.
