This kind of look at innovation is really important. Too often, like all histories, the tales of famous inventions are often told with protagonists predictable story arts to make them easy to relate to. Unfortunately this also gives people the sense that history revolves around a few "key players" and tends to downplay the role of everybody else.

Look around the internet, where people post methods, and you'll see how they grow and develop in the comments and replies. This talk (I'm only halfway through) is hitting it right on the nose. We don't promote innovation by restricting flows of information (censorship, patents etc), we do it by letting information flow free.
