Quote of the Week – Engineers

Engineers are a wonderful information resources. They are smart, practical, systematic, creative, and engaged.

– Jocelyn Sheppard

This oh so true statement, my “quote of the week,” appears in “Want to Move Your Technology to Market? Talk to an Engineer,” an article by my AIIP colleague Jocelyn Sheppard. The article appeared in the March/April edition of Online Searcher.  She should know; she’s a technology transfer and commercialization subject expert.

Thanks also for acknowledging your editing team in each issue. That’s a nice touch!

Quote of the Week X2 – Technological Innovation

I couldn’t resist Dave Barry today, who could?  While I don’t think Gillette (now part of P&G and a former employer in the distant past) has yet achieved time travel, technological innovations abound, and some are indeed incredible!

“One day soon the Gillette company will announce the development of a razor that, thanks to a computer microchip, can actually travel ahead in time and shave beard hairs that don’t even exist yet”  ~Dave Barry

I am just reading some McKinsey & Company material on disruptive technologies, which got me thinking about science, technology, and innovation.  Which in turn led me to my second quote of the week.

“The science of today is the technology of tomorrow.” ~Edward Teller

McKinsey & Co have produced a report on twelve emerging technologies.  The science /technology/innovation link is tough to miss!  I’ll summarize it in an upcoming post.  Meanwhile, enjoy Dave and Edward’s words of wisdom.

Quote of the Week – Mother of Success

In honor of Mothers Day, I couldn’t pass this one up.

“Every success is the mother of countless others.” ~Henry Ford

Which reminds of a piece of advice given early in my career by one of my managers – “start small and build on your successes!”  I’ve never forgotten that advice, even if I don’t always act on it.  But for today, I’m sticking with Henry F, because not only is success the mother of success, but mothers are the mothers of many sucesses, aren’t they?  Thanks Moms!
