Internet Trumps DNA For Innovation
from the not-surprising dept
theodp writes “Senior-level business executives responding to a BusinessWeek Innovation Survey have named the personal computer (56%) and the Internet (51%) as the greatest innovations of the past 75 years, trumping the discovery of DNA (49%), the polio vaccine (25%), and cloning (2%). When it comes to the most innovative CEOs, execs give the nod to Bill Gates (50%) and Steve Jobs (47%), although Apple (35%) bested Microsoft (32%) when it came to the most innovative company.” This doesn’t seem that surprising. If you look at what has impacted the people who filled out the survey, of course it’s going to be the stuff they see on their desk every day.
