Ok… this is a challenge… keeping the blogs up-to date… specially when blogs are not my primary channel of communication… however, at the conference, among other things, I have been convinced, that blogs and podcasts will be playing an important role not only in the hackers world but in business communities, as well. The conference was cool, it opened the core challenges of innovation societies and it stressed one more time two important relationships for the future of innovation as a global driver of growth and prosperity: relationship between media and academia and relationship between media and businesses. We all need to learn how to talk to each other, how to cooperate. Sweden, Finland, Silicon Valley are not by coincidence the drivers of global change. Probably the strongest differentiation factor is the networks that they have… their way of cross functional cooperation. David just proved it one more time to all of us attending the event… the networks really count…Can we make a progress in that field… I know we can… we actually should, since that is the most powerful elevation for innovation… and innovation is the best polygon for maximization of human capital, creativity and self being… the best ticket for successful global positioning.
