THE MYTHS OF INNOVATION
Thursday, May 24th, 2007 < 5:30 to 7:00pm
There will be networking from 5:00 - 5:30 before the event
Much of what we know about innovation is wrong < that's the bet this talk
takes, as it romps through the history of innovation in technology and
design, dispelling the mythologies we've constructed about how we got here.
This romp of a talk, loosely based on the upcoming O'Reilly book (May 2007),
will help you to recognize the myths, understand why they're popular (even
if you don't believe in them), and how to use the truth to help you innovate
