A little ditty for your next innovation workshop…

What if...

Another good piece of innovation stimulus from the lovely Lynette Webb,  Insights Manager at Google who created a Flickr site called “Interesting Snippets”. I’ve profiled her before and this is the latest image to her collection. It comes to us with a great quote from Russell Davies’ blog entry about Clay Shirky’s book Here Comes Everybody.

For those of you who haven’t heard about it, Clay’s book is about what happens when people are given the tools to do things together, without needing traditional organizational structures. When the traditional obstacles are broken down and we can all connect, engage and speak freely. What does this mean for the way we interact? For the way media publishers direct content? What happens when our unrestricted right to access, to connect and to speak is not only realised, but assumed?

It’s worth checking out Russell’s post on the book here

And if you haven’t read Clay’s blog you should definitely wet your whistle with a little of this
