Kevin O’Connor (born April 4, 1961) is an American entrepreneur and co-founder of Graphiq, a research engine founded in Santa Barbara in 2009.Previously, O’Connor was a co-founder of DoubleClick, an internet advertisement-technology, and founder of O’Connor Ventures, a venture capital firm that invests in early stage companies, including 9Star, Surfline, Travidia, Procore and CampusExplorer.

Sheer brilliance? While O’Connor is very smart indeed, he credits his success to applying Thomas Edison’s famous saying that “genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.” In other words, the breakthrough product or service that is the result of sheer genius alone is the exception. 

Great ideas that form the basis of new companies or that can make a hero of someone toiling in the corporate world are within reach of us all. 

“But wait,” says O’Connor, “ideas are cheap.” Just as important is doing something with them—a process that will turn the best ideas into something that people need. In other words, O’Connor argues convincingly, innovation can be systematically forced. 

The Map of Innovation is O’Connor’s step-by-step approach to devising lucrative new products and services and bringing them to market, through a process that has proven itself time and again in many different industries. Too often, people trying to innovate focus on things that don’t matter or waste their time trying to find answers to questions that can’t be answered. O’Connor shows why the map of innovation centers on getting right the five make-or-break fundamentals: creating a large number of viable ideas; picking the right idea to pursue; creating a highly focused strategy to bring the idea to market; getting the money to fund the strategy; and hiring the best people. With Kevin O’Connor, the proof of the value of methodical innovation is in the pudding. He helped start companies that have employed thousands of people and created billions in shareholder value. 

Anyone can get lucky once, but for success to strike three times and to include many successful products, there has to be a method and map, and any company, big or small, working on any product or service can benefit from O’Connor’s time-tested tactics.

Business Insider – Matt Weinberger – Sep 23, 2018, 7:09 AM – Apple’s newest MacBook Pro laptops got rid of the separate ports for charging and accessories, and instead whittled it down to two USB-C ports. USB-C is hyped as the replacement for regular-old USB, also known as USB Type-A. It can handle charging… NUZZEL the story

Such an account is reminding us about the formerly archived content in the AmazonXNG ….

An intimate look at the life of Steve Jobs by the mother of his first child providing rare insight into Jobs’s formative, lesser-known years.

“Steve Jobs was a remarkable man who wanted to unify the world through technology. For him, the point was to set people free with tools to explore their own unique creativity. Chrisann Brennan knows this better than anyone. She met him in high school, at a time when Jobs was passionately aware that there was something much bigger to be had out of life, and that new kinds of revelations were within reach.

“The Bite in the Apple is the very human tale of Jobs’s ascent and the toll it took, told from the author’s unique perspective as his first girlfriend, co-parent, friend, and—like many others—object of his cruelty. Brennan writes with depth and breadth, and she doesn’t buy into all the hype. She talks with passion about an idealistic young man who was driven to change the world, about a young father who denied his own child, and about a man who mistook power for love. Chrisann Brennan’s intimate memoir provides the reader with a human dimension to Jobs’ myth. Finally, a book that reveals a more real Steve Jobs.” MORE ©ANSWERS ▶ SLIDESHOW
