Jon Gertner



(From his website)

I’m currently an articles editor at Fast Company magazine, where I write and edit features on innovation and technology. Between 2004 and 2011, I worked as a writer at The New York Times Magazine, where I wrote about science, business, society, and (sometimes) economics. In March 2012 Penguin Press published The Idea Factory: Bell Labs and the Great Age of American Innovation. This is my first book.

I’ve travelled to California and Silicon Valley more times than I can count, but I’ve spent all of my life on the east coast. These days, I live in New Jersey with my wife and kids.

“You get paid for the seven and a half hours a day you put in here,” Kelly often told new Bell Labs employees in his speech to them on their first day, “but you get your raises and promotions on what you do in the other sixteen and a half hours.”
Jon Gertner, The Idea Factory: Bell Labs and the Great Age of American Innovation

“The first is that if you haven’t manufactured the new thing in substantial quantities, you have not innovated;”
