Innovators love to be left alone; introverts that prefer to hang out with their laptops than enjoy the company of other humans, but the thing is that you cannot innovate inside a vacuum.
Some of us have learned the hard way that most of the problems we face today are not because we do not have the technology to deal with them, but because of the human factor. By default, people actively resist change. People rarely are ready to take the jump and embrace new solutions.
This is why it is necessary to engage and talk to people, preferably the people you are meant to serve, run the ideas by them, weigh their reactions, and ensure you are really on the same page with them.
You cannot really innovate inside your vacuum.
