Racing with Innovation, the Red Queen

“Well, in our country,” said Alice, still panting a little, “you’d generally get to somewhere else—if you run very fast for a long time, as we’ve been doing.”

“A slow sort of country!” said the Queen. “Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!”

  2. Oh in such a slow country I would stay put and not run, to get to some other place.

  3. Excellent invocation of Alice! 🙂

  4. Did you see the latest movie, Laura Gibbs​? The reviews seem to have been bad so I have stayed away.

  5. I did not even see the first Burton one. I love the books and the whole history of the books, their illustrations, etc. It would take a lot to get me to go see an Alice movie… but I happily reread the books anytime! They are both in the UnTextbook for my class. 🙂

  6. Did you ever read The Secret History of the World, by Mark Booth, Laura Gibbs​?

  7. New to me, and from quick look I’d say that I must! Just grabbed the Kindle. Now I just need to grab the time to read it! Thank you!

  8. I think you’ll really enjoy it. And when you finish, drop me a note. I’ll be curious about your thoughts.

  9. I need to check and see if they have it at Audible.com also. This summer I have been listening to audiobooks and coloring in coloring books. A LOT. 🙂

  10. I always preferred Through The Looking Glass to Alice In Wonderland myself.

  11. Yes, Mark Bruce​, and accelerating the feedback loop.
