Hello Classmates,

I am not saying that I agree or disagree with the message that this commercial is trying to send, but I must say it was quite entertaining and effective to say the least.


On Presenting… June 2, 2009

The presentations were all fun and engaging.  I wanted to jot down some of my thoughts for what seemed to work the best.

-Decorations were fantastic for setting the atmosphere and getting me into the mindset of each corporation.  I was especially impressed by the fruits everywhere for the Jamba Juice group.

-Class involvement in the presentation was also extremely beneficial.  I liked the Jamba team’s method of rotating stations with each station leader imparting information about the company and its process.  I thought the class responded best to projects that encouraged us to innovate new solutions for the company.  We felt like we were a part of the process.

-The Loopt group’s Google Maps presentation was awesome.  What a cool way to pull up visual aspects of your presentation.

-Every group used much of the wide bredth of media available in the room, which kept the presentations lively and dynamic.  For a tech junkie like me, it was fun just to see everything incorporated into one presentation.

-Twitter’s paper tweets really grabbed me.  I’m a bit resistive to twitter and other forms of constant electronic communication, but they bridged the gap well.

White House and Social Innovation May 30, 2009

d.Extreme‘s letter to Pres. Obama got me thinking… what is the White House doing regarding innovation and entrepreneurship? A quick perusal of www.whitehouse.gov led me to the newly created Office of Social Innovation -and a really cool bill just passed into legislation on April 21, 2009….

The Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, meant to “usher in a new era of national service,”  comes with the establishment of the Social Innovation Fund. The Fund has allotted $50 million for the 2010 Fiscal year to be given to existing grant-making institutions to start their own Social Innovation Grant programs.

What types of activities can the Fund go to? According to AmericaForward:

“The Funds may be focused on serving a specific local geographic area (for example a neighborhood, group of rural counties, city, state, or an identifiable region) or address one of the following issues:

  • Education for economically disadvantaged students
  • Child and youth development
  • Reductions in poverty or increases in economic opportunity
  • Health, including access to health services and health education
  • Resource conservation and local environmental quality
  • Civic engagement
  • Reductions in crime”

Pretty neat!

Google Wave was just announced today at the Google I/O conference. It is a very interesting look at Google’s vision for the future of communication on the internet. Of particular interest to me are the potential applications for real time collaboration on the internet. It would be very interesting to use this tool set and engage in some of the brainstorming/mind mapping activities that we have learned in class.
