TEDxProvidence – Kipp Bradford- Science the new football? – 2012
on subtle forms of racism that set kids off the path
march 83 – wanting to be an astronaut – 3rd grade
it’s clear to me that this subtle racism is incredibly destructive.
9 min – what black kids have to look up to – ie: about 68% of football players are black
tim wise – white like me –
what’s harder 1700 current nfl players, 1,700000 practicing engineers
so 68% is saying.. not just that you should do football.. but that you shouldn’t do engineer..
12 min – what are we inspiring our kids to do…
how should they be using their heads… ie: using head to discover.. explore
14 min – there are other options.. we have some opportunities to change perceptions
15 min – take opportunity to celebrate discovery
if we give kids hopes/dreams of being scientists/engineers.. providing better future.. we have to change the way we look at heroes.. ie: heroes can be scientists, nerds
Closing remarks – revolution by design – june 2014
self-expression such a powerful
innovation at the intersection of cultures
on analyzing the entrepreneurial activities of recent immigrants..
on embracing the type of experimentation it takes to see how things work
on not getting in the way
Urban Sensor Hack #4: Bio Sensing Kits with Sean Montgomery and Kipp Bradford – 2013
biomedical engineer, decade as toy inventor
distributed network data –
5 min – arduino shield for google
how to fix american innovation – 2012
how the patent system works…
the problem is .. the patent process is not designed for everybody
for me – finding out 2 yrs later.. denied in 1st round – after spending 25000
we have this conception that being awarded property rights of any kind has value proposition
the reality is – we don’t make money when we patent tech
the making of money – is from suing.. the judge and the patent attorney are the ones that end up winning
patents do not generate incomes – almost inclusively – only money is from pharma
5 min – why patent law in the first place – to drive innovation… by rewarding people for sharing..
when patent law was created.. the world was different, ie: the inventor was the innovator.. very intimate..
6 min – what’s invention vs innovation.. the difference has become greater and more profound
innovation drives economics yet we’re rewarding the invention that doesn’t
8 min – history has shown that most tech change comes through the small contributions of ordinary, anonymous workers and tinkerers. – jeanne fromer
9 min – patents are for inventions.. innovations drive economy
Distributed Environmental Data: On the Ground at the Data Sensing Lab – 2013
