Innovation Issue of The New Yorker

The May 11, 2009 issue of The New Yorker is the "The Innovators Issue". I liked the article by Malcolm Gladwell called How David Beats Goliath, Secrets of Highly Effective Underdogs. Gladwell looks at how outsiders who are relative Davids beat incumbent Goliaths by playing the game in ways Goliath doesn't expect. Odds for David shrink significantly if he plays the same game Goliath is good at.

Adam Gopnik has a funny piece on innovation and evolution.

For completely other reasons, I enjoyed Rebecca Mead's article The Art Doctor, Conserving Contemporary Art with the big picture of a Paul McCarthy sculpture.
