For example, in the negative forms of copying that we know, such as academic plagiarism or copyright infringement, we exact a serious punishment on such instances of “diffusion of innovation”—to use the authors’ terms In our inherently social environment rooted in the desire to achieve fairness and justice, we prescribe judgment on what makes a certain kind of innovation appropriate—and thus, vii FOREWORD make it more complex for innovation and much of the “social learning” described in this book to happen The work described in this book will make you scratch your head and wonder about your own culture’s proclivities for sharing (or hoarding)—whether that be your culture at work, your country’s, or the unique social space within your own family If innovation is, as the authors imply in this text, just one part good idea and many other parts setting it loose to be copied, then you will think differently about how tightly you hold onto “your stuff” and increase your own inclination to just let it all go Doesn’t that feel simple? Now, just don’t tell your intellectual property lawyer (smile) viii PREFACE: IN KATZ’S DELI Much of the 1989 Rob Reiner movie When Harry Met Sally now seems more than a little sugary This tale of dating and friendship among Manhattan’s middle class trumpets its moral almost as loudly as its plot twists, as Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally (Meg Ryan) meet and mate and remeet (as friends) and so on, until the inevitable final reunion That said, the movie contains one of the more memorable scenes of romantic comedy As they’re sitting in a Lower East Side delicatessen, the topic of female orgasms comes up, and Harry tells Sally that no woman has ever faked one with him How does he know? Sally asks He just knows, Harry responds Sally then shows him—and the rest of the deli’s clientele—just how wrong he is What happens after that is what lies at the heart of our book At the next table is a woman of what is politely known as “a certain ix BIBLIOGRAPHY Wuchty, Stefan, Benjamin F Jones, and Brian Uzzi “The Increasing Dominance of Teams in Production of Knowledge.” Science 316 (2005):
