The Value of an Idea as conceptualized by Thomas Edison

To go with the flow is easy, to be disruptive requires curiosity and vision that goes beyond the horizon.  As American technology entrepreneur, Jeff Bezos, said, “Invention is by its very nature disruptive. If you want to be understood at all times, then don’t do anything new.” In this age of technology and information, the world is flooded with all kinds of invention ideas. So much so, that it is hard to come up with an absolute original that no one ever thought of before. However, there is always some inconvenience that affect people at different times of their lives in different environments, to which a remedy can be found by creative, determined individuals. What happens more often, perhaps, is inventors coming up with products that perform useful, but not necessarily urgent, tasks that people understand need doing.In contemporary times, at least, inventions do not have much to do with necessity, contrary to the popular saying, because the need is already satisfied by existing products. What modern inventions do is produce more effective and more lasting results, or probably achieve them more economically, thus being eco-friendly and more profitable in the long run.
