Kristian, this is a great example of the Medici Effect being applied. While I don't think that John was probably actively seeking innovation as suggested in the book, he definitely had the "aha" moment. It's inspiring how he was able to take an established fact that radio waves excite and heat up metal and combine that with another field to create his idea. Thanks for sharing! I love hearing these stories; they help drive me in my own Medici Effect quest.

I'm glad you like the stories! And yes - Kanzius really shows us all how to invent. His solution makes you wonder how many rather basic but undiscovered intersections that are within reach. And I'm very curious about your Medici Effect quest...
