Margaret Reeve Panahi's curator insight, March 26, 2013 7:32 AM

"In today's On the News segment: Minutes before 5am, early Saturday morning, members of the Senate did something they haven't done in four years - they passed a budget; there is an extreme wealth divide between the 1% and the 99% in our nation. But it turns out, the divide between the 1% and poorest in our nation is jaw-dropping; Rupert Murdoch has been trying to convince lawmakers to revise media ownership rules that prevent him from acquiring The Los Angelos Times, and more."

Innovation - a capability, not an activity

Innovation is a capability developed and nurtured over time, not a once and done activity. If you want a rabbit from a hat, buy a magician's kit.


Via Peter Verschuere, Sergey Yatsenko
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This is a topic not addressed in nearly enough circles and many of the traditional industries such a telecoms and cable companies and publishers are trying to keep old models that risk the innovation and connections we have thrived with in the last decades. Feeling threatened they are grasping for ownership of the message again. That is a dangerous dinosaur model to try to hold onto into today's connected world.
