How war, porn & fast food drive innovation in technology and learning

 

What stimulates technological innovation?  The Canadian journalist Peter Nowak argues that most of the advances in technology that we enjoy today can be traced back to the industries that cater for our most basic instincts: military, porn, and fast food. The microwave oven, for example, is an adaptation of the radar developed for detecting bombers during World War II.

 

In this podcast interview with Dom Graveson, Peter Nowak shares some of the “I did not know that” moments he provides in his book "Sex, Bombs and Burgers".  And he explains how technology is driving the demand for 'entrepreneurial learning', a subject that will be the theme of a major speech he will deliver later this year at the leading education technology conference, ONLINE EDUCA.
