An Interview with Frans Johansson on the Medici

In this time of recession, innovation has jumped to the fore in many
people's minds. How can we create new value through innovations and pull
our individual compani es out of the doldrums? In 2004, Frans Johansson
publish ed his book, "The Medici Effect," where he discussed how
crossing community boundaries leads to innovations, and h e said that
the most effective way to create the cross ing is to mix people from the
communities in a common setting. Ubiquity editor John Gehl spoke with
Johansso n shortly after the book was published. Johansson's wor ds are
worth thinking about now as we reflect on what we all must do next.
