Regular Twitter-based discussion of innovation topics, each Thursday at noon (Eastern time)

Welcome to

Innochat is a lively, informative and inspiring one-hour(ish) discussion on Thursdays at noon (Eastern US time). Usually the best way to follow along is to head over to TweetChat - sign in with your Twitter credentials and follow along and participate. Tweetchat takes care of adding the hashtag too, so you don't have to worry about forgetting it.

Note: We have noted the impending demise of TweetChat due to the shift in Twitter's API policy and we are seeking alternatives to support Innochat.
