Innovations based on digital technology are becoming increasingly prevalent. But much of it is highly questionable. Is digital innovation arriving at the peak of inflated expectations? Some of the current discussion of the so-called "Internet of Things" would seem to indicate that. If so, the trough of disillusionment lies ahead.

Innovation happens when people adopt a different approach to achieving their purpose. Typically, we move from one approach to another over time, with different people adopting each approach at different times, but generally in approximately the same sequence.

Shopping has undergone a huge range of innovative developments since the days of the old grocery or hardware store in the high street.

Some patterns of behaviour in online (virtual) stores are also finding their way back into physical stores.

In my opinion, the field of innovation is currently among the most important areas of behaviour by people, as individuals and in organizations (of a wide range of types). So there are important things to discuss in this field.
But when we discuss innovation, what are we doing? What are we chatting about? What do you want #innochat to be?
