On the Vital Importance of Implementation

If we can imagine it with our current mindsets, created from thinking with our current tools, we are not really innovating, we are implementing. There is no way of knowing how a capability can grow us as humans before we use it since the capability becomes a part of us and in turn generates a deep understanding of the capability’s extension of us than a theoretical inquiry might.

McLuhan famously said that all media becomes our extensions: “All media are extensions of some human faculty- psychic or physical.” This is true to the point that even our physical bodies are our mediums: A baby is not born with the understanding of what a baby arm can do – and certainly not what an adult arm can do in an adult body. Our basic understandings of our basic capabilities grow as our capabilities grow.

However, we still need to build what we can imagine, to then be able to imagine the next step. & so on. & we need to build it well:

The interactions, through some computer environment, is where the rubber hits the road, where the actual system happens and is where the visible innovation happens. If the interactions are not good, whatever ideas there are behind them, the system is just not going to be useful.
