Questions & Threads

The breadth of the questions in my head has stopped growing, so dumping them all now. These may or may not be related. Just thinking out loud…in no particular order:

  • What are the constraints on thinking? (Short list: metaphor, language, culture, semantics)
  • Why did I become interested in privilege and intersectionality?
  • Why have I become interested in innovation as a thing in its own right? (As opposed to being interested in it as a tool to achieve some other end — eg launch a business)
  • Why have I come back to intellectual property as something of interest?
  • What is it about the philosophy of science, the “science of science” and systemic scientific failures that keeps grabbing my attention?
  • Why, again, am I interested in cross-discipline research as a thing in its own right? Have I gone full-meta?
  • What are the constraints on problem solving, especially big problems? What is it that links Silicon Valley Technology Entrepreneurship, McDonald’s Happy Meal toys, and our missing moon landing?
  • What is it about start-up incubators that makes me want to help build one?
  • “Research takes time.” Why? I mean, why exactly?
  • What is the value of diversity? What axes matter? What are my motivations for wanting to promote it?
  • Why do I see the distorting effects of KPIs everywhere… am I seeing what I place there myself?
  • Why have I linked Systems Thinking, lean manufacturing, agile software development and Japanese management and what nuances have I missed in doing that?

These are just the work related ones.

No wonder I’m having trouble sleeping. :)
