Why (And How) to Develop Great Ideas

Why (And How) to Develop Great Ideas | Innovation | Scoop.it

To help make an idea great, it has got to have a “why” attached to it (the justification) and a “how” to make it possible (the logistics).

Sometimes, when brainstorming, people become attached to certain ideas. Or maybe there is an idea they’ve brought in with them to the meeting. Or you’ll come across that “great idea” put upon the team by a company executive … who heard it from his nephew.

Smart Cities: Technology, Sustainability & Innovation for a Better World

Smart Cities: Technology, Sustainability & Innovation for a Better World | Innovation | Scoop.it

They only occupy two per cent of the Earth’s land mass, but cities today use a huge amount of the planet’s natural capital, consuming 75 % of global resources and generating 80 % of global greenhouse gas emissions.

As the world population grows to 9 billion by 2050, the number of those living in urban areas will swell by 3 billion to 6.3 billion. With demand for energy and resources set to spike on the back of urban population growth, smart cities have emerged as the modern answer to the wave of urbanisation sweeping across the globe.

 

What defines a smart city?

Put simply, smart cities integrate diverse technologies to reduce its environmental impact. Using a more formal definition from a recent report by the United Cities and Local Governments, smart cities use new technologies, innovation and knowledge management to become more liveable, functional, competitive and modern, bringing together six key fields of performance: the economy, mobility, the environment, citizenship, quality of life and management.

MN: MHTA Spring Conference: innovation, cloud computing and mobile technology | Blandin on Broadband

 

Yesterday I attended the Minnesota High Tech Association Spring Conference. It’s always a good opportunity to see folks and hear about what’s happening in the high tech industries and what folks are thinking about. It seems they are thinking about innovation, cloud computing and mobile technology.

 

I heard a lot of speakers talk about the need to open up their technology and their ideas –in terms of getting feedback from customers, getting customers to help spread the word (generally via social media), listening to what others are doing. Technology projects can no longer be done in a vacuum – because the technology outside of that vacuum changes so quickly.

 

I tried to take notes during the sessions I attended. Also I have a video of my colleague Bill Coleman talking about the MIRC project. All of the Tekne Award recipients from 2012 were invited to speak at the conference – and the MIRC project was a recipient.
