I am back! as a moderator for the Aug. 18 chat. The topic is questions, specifically, how and why innovators are better off looking for questions than looking for answers.

This will be a spirited, free-form discussion, similar to last week's chat. All views are welcome. I clearly come down on the side of questions. I'd love to hear more thought on this view, and also hear the thoughts of people who favor a looking-for-answers approach.
