Walt Disney is probably my all time favourite innovator. I’ve read books and watched several documentaries about him. To me, he is entrepreneurship and innovation personified, a true “Unreasonable Thinker”.
Here’s a video of him explaining his vision for The Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, better known as EPCOT. There are several interesting things to note about the man:
- Like a true innovator, he envisioned EPCOT as a concept that would never be complete and constantly evolving.
- He believed in thinking several decades ahead.
- He was a master of visual demonstration long before technology made this easy. All animations you see here were hand drawn!
