In "Makers", Kodak and Duracell are merging to form the conglomerate, "Kodacell". The new company has wads of cash, but no products that anyone wants to buy anymore. Sound familiar?
So an Eminent blogger, Suzanne Church, is hired by the CEO of Kodacell to move from Silicon Valley to the burned-out, bankrupted suburban strip-mall wastelands of Florida and write about the new engineering exploits of two guys who specialize in scavenging the circuitry from piles of unsold Boogie-Woogie Elmo dolls and constructing innovative but useless technological inventions that sell well for a time, and have not yet been copied and undercut by overseas sweatshops.
To the CEO, Kodacell's future is innovation. Recognizing that every product they create will have it's margins fully undercut by global competition within 6 months, the strategy for the company is innovation for innovation's sake. Don't stick with an idea too long. Come up with a new one before the old one is completely subsumed by more efficient world-wide copycat operations.
This theme should strike a warm chord in the restless heart of the library open source community.
