I knew about Jacob’s research and what he consulted. Now I’m reading about the research that led to his — that of Genrich Altshuller, who researched creativity in post-war Russia until he was imprisoned in a purge by Stalin… then followed by significant interest in his work afterward. It seems the interest in Russia was significant. Outside, I’m not sure.

I knew Jacob followed Altshuller’s work, simplified it, and made it more accessible to westerners and business people. I also knew there was something in Russia and someone was punished under Stalin. I hadn’t studied what happened before in any detail.

Now I’m starting to get a more detailed picture. I’ll try to keep things simple in future posts … more than simple, I’ll try to make things simple, or motivational.
