In case you missed it from earlier this week, Walter Isaacson visited Big Think to discuss the inextricable link between new technologies and creative communities built around them. Isaacson noticed when researching his new book, The Innovators, that innovation has a remarkable ability to draw out the human need for connectivity. It's this creative connection that gives technology a broader cultural meaning:

"Technology has always been driven by engineering but the next phase is connecting the creativity to it, the creative industry."
