More podcast action from the EDUCA2011 pre conference series.

What stimulates technological innovation? The Canadian journalist Peter Nowak argues that most of the advances in technology that we enjoy today can be traced back to the industries that cater for our most basic instincts: military, porn, and fast food. The microwave oven, for example, is an adaptation of the radar developed for detecting bombers during World War II.


In this podcast interview with Dom Graveson, Peter Nowak shares some of the “I did not know that” moments he provides in his book “Sex, Bombs and Burgers”. And he explains how technology is driving the demand for ‘entrepreneurial learning’, the topic of his keynote speech at ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN 2011.
