This week, as promised, I am moderating the chat using as a starting point the last two questions from last week’s chat, masterfully put together by @AndreeaHirica and @JohnWLewis:

What distinguishes a “good” (effective) motivation from a “bad” (ineffective) motivation?

How do good vs. bad “why”s for innovation relate to emotional vs. rational motivations?

This week, on January 15 at 12pm ET, our guest is Andreea Hirica (@AndreeaHirica), a frequent innocat who describes herself as a “digital native by age and digital immigrant by market of origin”. She is, evidently, well qualified to address this topic, has suggested our cryptic title, and has jointly written the following framing post.

Generation Y, Generation Why, or Generation Why not?  What if the, so well attributed, “Millennials” characteristics are not the distinctive features of a specific age group but are generational in a different sense?

Innovation or technology?
