||Understanding the lessons your life is teaching you.
You might think that on the cutting edge of development, the Internet
would be a good source of materials and information about innovation. Sadly that's not the case. There are many poorly resourced start up activities like the one you are reading now. There are a few better resourced but not very innovative projects. There are hundreds (thousands) of people with weak ideas and poor business understanding trying to make a fortune off the back of other people's good ideas. I've searched for good links and found few.
Moreover the links in this area are unstable. In 1997 there were 20+ working links on this page. (Old site www.ate.co.nz) In 2003 only three of those links still functioned. If some of these links are broken, that's about what I'd expect.
These links were revised again in March 2005. Of ten good links in 2003, only two remain viable. Innovation is a highly unstable topic. I notice though several government efforts to focus on innovation. As Open Future Limited opens there are only 14 good links.
Now in 2012 things have improved regarding stability. Five broken links have been removed.

A few Book Links
Ideas are Free

Leading for Innovation and Organizing for Results
From the Drucker Fopundation. This book has all the big name authors, and the editors have pedigree to burn, but for me it only taks off occasionally. See Amazon here.
