    Good blog, as always. It provokes as many thoughts as it solves. I tend to think of something like this moving us down a path where the end is still a ways to go.

    Both large and small companies innovate. Large companies get mired overall but can have skunk works that are quite effective. Arguably, the Innovators Dilemma book by Clayton Christenson, suggests that smaller groups of people tend to innovate faster or more often. Have you seen any statistics that correlate innovation per R&D dollar? What about statistics on disruptiveness — seen anything like that?
