Innovation Marathon May 15-16, 2009

Point: Special events like marathons (for bloggers & innovators) create a focal 24hours_125_125point of energy, creativity, and idea exchange.

Story: For 24 hours starting 10am CET May 15, bloggers around the world will share their insights about innovation. Each blogger gets a timeslot, and the action will move from blog to blog. My timeslot is 8:15 EDT on Friday, May 15, and the full line-up will be listed at the Board of Innovation.

This marathon provides a great way to explore innovation from many people’s perspectives. I’m looking forward to the exchange of ideas. Because each blogger selects their own topic to write about, it will be interesting to see what patterns, trends and sparks of creativity emerge.

    What an amazing idea! I wonder when overload kicks in. Are you going to train for it?

    🙂 train for it – maybe pump some innovation articles. Actually, I’ll be live-blogging the World Innovation Forum May 5-6, so that’ll actually be a marathon in itself!
