i welcome this book as a whole truth entrepreneurial resource with few equals. Context my first venture on public www was in 1995 was to host a year long egroup by hand on organising creativity- what I learnt there is that organisations that shout loudest about innovation are often the ones who least want radical change because they dont actually want anything to alter a process that is currently highly profitable


I am looking to forward to reading this book (publication 1 Oct 2013) and ebook  more than anything since my father's last articles in 2008- sneak peeks at or twitter with Australian Author @kimchandler

Reconnecting extreme innovation agents - typical mail from Foundation Norman Macrae  The Economist's pro-youth Economist

Dear Friends from a Wave Ago

Most of us used to chat or meet quite a lot a wave ago - among various networks on the use of media, knowledge management and elearning

I have recently found 2 ways of relooking at the massive collaboration and helping youth make the next decade the most productive ever which quite frankly I prefer to what seemed to be the required wisdom of knowledge management

One of these is the huge subject of open learning platforms; unlike people who get starry eyed with million person moocs like coursera I am as interested in whether will succeed in say choosing the 10 curriculum youth most need to be free - with maths and community health being the first two they are scaling they are off to a good start. I am doing surveys of young people on what training modules they want to viralise around a million youth-and would love to hear from anyone who might like to join in

The other is the publication by Kim McDonald of 100 deep interviews of innovation coming 1 october but previewing I have always been deeply troubled by information on innovation. When I first got an email account in 1995 I hosted a year long egroup manually in days when you could still linkin leading R&D Directors including Procter & Gambles worldwide director of R&D and microsoft chief trainer of how to question!. What we exchanged then had much more curiosity than any academic tome I have ever seen on innovation and much more interest in the internet as a collaboration media than as an advertising media (something that the internet has spun the wrong way in my view)

It would be wonderful to hear from you and your current focus - even a bookmark on what you are doing. My father stared writing what futures the internet generation could achieve in The Economist n 1972 because my first job at that time was in computer assisted learning. I see open education as the last chance to end loss generations in many countries caused by all sorts of errors of big systems and zero-sum evaluation

 Foundation Nprman Macrae The Economist's Pro-youth economist



"We can generalize all we like about innovation, but in the end it boils down to people. What unites them is the gift to see round corners and press on when more rational persons hold back. Here are sharply-focused interviews with these doers and some keen observers. I've read them to my profit, and so will you." (Nigel Cameron, President of the Center for Policy on Emerging Technologies in Washington, DC, and Managing Director at C-PET Futures Platform)

"The book is a gallery of bright and brilliant innovation stories in our GDE-Global Digital Economy and Me-conomics. It is full of inspiring interviews as well as mind-stimulating 'Quizzics'. It is demonstrating that the future is in navigating the innovative ecosystems generated by the renewal of National Intellectual Capital, as well as leveraging/embracing the innovative Intellectual Capital multiplier effects of ICT innovation at the enterprise level." (Leif Edvinsson, World's First Professor on Intellectual Capital; Brain of the Year 1998 for pioneering Intellectual Capital Navigation; Open Innovation Luminary Awardee 2013)

"Kim Chandler McDonald offers fresh (and brash) voices of unexpected innovators who will delight and inspire people everywhere to find their own creative spark in a "me-conomy" of new possibilities." (Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Harvard Business School Professor and bestselling author of Confidence and SuperCorp: How Vanguard Companies Create Innovation, Profits, Growth, and Social Good)

"The importance of innovative thought and the collaboration of ideas and inspiration is at the forefront of this collection of interviews and essays. The range of business expertise and acumen is extensive; however it's important that Kim has also included award winning young people who illustrate that students have great potential and strive for excellence in a wide range of fields that benefit business and society alike. By including these young people and highlighting the non-cognitive skills they deployed to drive change, the book becomes a bridge to discussion among a wide range of ages and interests." (Sarah Berghorst, Chief Executive Director at OneGoal)

"The personal insights shared by the innovators who were interviewed explore the core concepts underlying innovation and the skills that will define success in the increasingly competitive global digital economy. With its enhanced eBook/online format, !nnovation is a great read and an intriguing interactive experience!" (Francine Gordon, Ph.D. CEO of Womenovation)

"Succeeds in being visionary and pragmatic at the same time. Filled with valuable insights and grounded advice. Gives you an urge to improve everything around you - which is the essence of innovation." (Saku Tuominen. Founder of Idealist Group and Dreamdo. Entrepreneur, executive producer, author, keynote-speaker, innovator and idealist)

"Innovation is boundless, borderless and vital to a vibrant, creative and prosperous society. Kim Chandler McDonald illustrates this compellingly by bringing together more than 100 international thought-leaders, highlighting the triumphs and obstacles behind real-world, world-class innovation. " (Henry F. De Sio, Jr. 2008 Obama for America COO, Former Deputy Assistant to President Barack Obama, Author & Leadership Innovator)

"When reading Innovation, it's not hard to imagine the incredibly busy schedules of its contributors and readers, and see the purpose of the book's delicious bite-sized chunks of ideas, experiences and insights that may be savoured in moments of respite or over a lazy weekend afternoon. It offers a glimpse into an organic global order - the roots, branches and leaves of innovation - that is shaping humanity's future, and the requisite tending and shaping of ideas that is necessary to continue to make innovation meaningful, and not just an overplayed buzzword." (Brad Smith, Founder of WebVisions)

"Innovation contains hundreds of fascinating thoughts about how true innovation occurs in the real world. Too many books on the subject matter are full of fluff and hyperbole, while never saying anything worth while. However, Kim delivers on her promises and provides useful insight through the lens of others." (Seth Kravitz is a Chicagoan, Cofounder of Technori, Bow Truss Coffee Roasters and Strange Pelican Brewery)
