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.

What can we learn about business innovation from a consideration of parallel lessons from the world of music?

Some time ago, Peter Cook (@AcademyOfRock) took part in #innochat, and afterwards we exchanged some thoughts. This eventually led to this chat topic, triggered by his interests in the relationships between music and innovation and what we might learn from them.
