Renee Hopkins Presides Over Innochat, Your Thursday Dose of Innovation Chatter

The combined wisdom of nearly 800 tweets on Innovation Models & Processes.

Thursdays at 11:00 a.m. Central time, the #Innochat hashtag kicks into gear and for the next hour innovation is on everyone’s twips. Follow along, join in and you’ll meet some of the most innovation-savvy people  on the planet. People such as Julian Keith Loren from San Francisco, who wrote:

@jkloren Customers push org to homogeneity. Need a heterogeneous sensing network, separate. #innochat

Sure, 140 characters doesn’t allow a lot of context, but I get Loren’s drift. Customer pressures can push an organization to follow the same pathways again and again. Maybe we need a heterogeneous sensing network. Do they sell that at the Apple store?

Innochat is a 181 member (and growing) group of why-curious people who tweet about various aspects of innovation, which Innochat member Caroline Di Diego defines as:

@CASUDI To inno is to dev tech, product, market, and org simultaneously. #innochat

Short, clear and to the point, I like that.

Renee Hopkins is the Innochat wagon master, but she is quick to credit group members who develop topics and lead discussions.

To ease into the Innochat scene, visit the Innochat site for the framing post that gives background information on the upcoming topic. Last week’s transcript post by Andrew [Drew] Marshall contains the combined wisdom of nearly 800 tweets on Innovation Models & Processes.

So give yourself an innovation break this Thursday. But be forewarned, your weekly dose of Innochat can be habit forming:

@TalentCulture Bummed I couldn’t make it back in time for #innochat yesterday – will look out for the transcript soon

Watch for more from Renee Hopkins, who recently joined McCombs School of Business as the editor of Texas Enterprise, an online publication launching in September that will focus on business expertise and opinion from The University of Texas at Austin.
