Innovation Meets Invention: A Review of The Innovators by Walter Isaacson

The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution by Walter Isaacson Book Review

I always take notes when I read a book. Part of it comes from wanting the ability to add quotes to the reviews I write, but the bigger picture reason is because sometimes I like to go back to those notes and see them at a later date. By actually being able to read through a small document with all the quotes I pulled, I’ll find the one I remember, and it’s easier than paging through and rereading a whole page.

I bring this up because the notes I collected from reading The Innovators by Walter Isaacson are more than a lot of the other books I have recently read, even some on the same subject.

I like to keep up on things and try them out or at least see what all the fuss is about, so let’s go through them shall we? We’ll do so in alphabetical order, because it’s only logical.

A Companion to My Declassified Top Secret Podcast Appearance on The Podcast Digest

It has happened.

No, it’s not a shock that I appeared on another podcast, but it is quite the surprise that I appeared on The Podcast Digest.

This doesn’t go back that far, although I have reached out to Dan to guest on his show before. Most recently, I was told “not without a podcast of my own,” by Dan on The Diamond Dave Show, but with all of our Twitter sparring, this was a fun secret.

Declassifying the Internet

Agent Palmer presents: ‘Declassifying the Internet’

Let me start by saying that I am by no means an expert. In fact, when it comes to the Internet, I’m not sure there are any “experts.”

But I do have a sound grasp of knowledge surrounding the concepts and tools available through the world wide web. With that knowledge, I would like to introduce you to my “Declassifying the Internet” series.
