Our guest on Jan 13 will be Tom Asacker, frequent speaker on innovation-related topics and author of (most recently) Opportunity Screams: Unlocking Hearts and Minds in Today's Idea Economy.  This is a small book that packs a big punch in insights, so Tom and I recently talked about how this chat should be focused. You can read an excellent summary of the book in this review by Beth Harte.

In January 2009 I went to a party in Boston hosted by Laura Fitton, @pistachio on Twitter, with whom I had connected at the Oct. 2008 BIF conference. I was a Texas transplant who had been in Boston for exactly one week without a car and had just begun to realize that living without a car after 30 years with one was too much of a cultural change.

Stephen Shapiro (@stephenshapiro) will be guest "expert" for this chat based on his new book, Personality Poker. I had the opportunity to play Personality Poker in a large group led by Stephen, and then led a group of my co-workers in a game as well. It's fun and illuminating. You can play an online version here: http://game.personalitypokerbook.com/poker.php and in fact, would be great to do that before Thursday's chat.

Earlier this year, Drew Marshall posted a list of innovation conferences on innochat.com.  The next conference I'll be attending is the Innovation3: Crowdsourcing, Culture & Tools Summit, being held in Orlando Dec 8-10, 2010.  Looking at the agenda of that conference, some of the intriguing content focuses on creating online innovation communities, so I thought that might be an interesting one to explore in our innochat this week.
