The Difference

I just read a great article (http://www.pbs.org/idealab/2012/03/the-difference-between-invention-and-innovation086.html) similar to one of my previous posts on the difference between innovators and inventors. The gist?  Innovation is capitalizing on the rippling wave of invention. They both take an insight into possibility, but innovators make profits come alive from a products potential.The article implied that Edison was an inventor while Jobs was an innovator. One paved the way with brand new ideas, while the other capitalized on existing ideas to improve, market and sell in ways others can't deny.
