I read an article in the November edition of Texas Monthly on the history of the development of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking as it is known around these parts of South Texas. Thirty-two years ago George Mitchell, the “father of fracking,” was looking for a way to get a little more production out of a marginal gas well and ended up changing the world. The article provides a pretty powerful counterpoint to those that subscribe the “eureka moment” method of innovation.
