Innovation in design (was: RFID and other fads)

Here is something to look into, for anyone who cares about having
an inventor's mind - TRIZ (Theory of Inventive Problem Solving),
a methodology for creative engineering design developed in the
1960s. This is one of the great timeless things, similar to
McLuhan's "Understanding media" and Ashby's "Introduction to
cybernetics". TRIZ has a fairly solid background - it took
200,000 patents to analyse to discover and describe how innovation
takes place.
