For those interested in learning more about Bell Labs, I highly recommend "The Idea Factory". It's a history of Bell Labs, focusing both on the biographies of the engineers and also a meta story about how you create an organization that consistently produces impactful innovation.

The article points out that The Idea Factory misses out on some key fundamental innovations from Bell Labs


In sacrificing comprehensiveness, it benefits from focusing in on a more cohesive narrative that allows the reader to take away more.

Correct. Apologies!
