Fail more to discover the value in the connected future

The “bottom up” connected future requires mass experimentation and a lot of failure to find the services that are valuable and viable.

A recent MIT Technology Review article  talks about the underappreciated ties between art and innovation and also the FailCon events , where entrepreneurs share stories about failures and how they help them.

An excellent example is Andre Geim who won the IgNobel award for levitating a frog and also Nobel prize for isolating Graphene

What’s becoming clear is that the “top down” view of connected world and smart cities is joining the “walled garden”, as something that grew from corporate strategy workshops and business models, but was never able to make it as a sustainable approach.

Keep failing!!
