The Henry Ford, the museum associated with Henry Ford and his company, will be launching a new web site focusing on recent innovation and the people who make it happen. If you're not familiar with the museum, it's more than just cars. They cover a broad range of American history with a particular focus on technological innovation, fitting considering Ford's role in American history and his relationship with people like Thomas Edison and George Washington Carver among others. One of the museum's goals is to advance and encourage innovation, particular among young people.

The new site, called OnInnovation at, will feature comprehensive interviews and oral histories of some of America's and most interesting and visionary thinkers. Its goal is to "serve as a foundation for strengthening and enhancing educational curricula, encouraging creative problem-solving and promoting the emergence of a new talent base of innovative thinkers." At its launch it will feature in-depth interviews with people like Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple, Don Chadwick, co-designer of the Aeron Chair, Dean Kamen, inventor, Pierre Omidyar, founder of e-Bay and Elon Musk, co-founder of PayPal, Tesla Motors and SpaceX. People from The Henry Ford have been going around the country interviewing important innovators where they work.

The site will launch in October, but you can go there now to get a feel for it and if you like, register to be notified when the site opens and when new interviews are released.
