Regular Twitter-based discussion of innovation topics, each Thursday at noon (Eastern time)

Welcome to

Innochat is a lively, informative and inspiring one-hour(ish) discussion on Thursdays at noon (Eastern US time). Usually the best way to follow along is to head over to TweetChat - sign in with your Twitter credentials and follow along and participate. Tweetchat takes care of adding the hashtag too, so you don't have to worry about forgetting it.

Note: We have noted the impending demise of TweetChat due to the shift in Twitter's API policy and we are seeking alternatives to support Innochat.

Why would you not want to be in the “early majority” category of adopters in every field which is important to you? Each of the categories involved in the diffusion of innovations through populations has different criteria for adoption. Of these categories, the “early majority” category seems to be based on the most rational approach and is therefore the most sensible category to be in. However, the world is more complicated than that, and there are a variety of reasons why the early majority make up only about one third of the population.

Our dear friend and compatriot, @Renee_Hopkins came back from the World Innovation Forum last June with a big smile and the #Disruptus game in hand, which we first played in #innochat a week later. It was so fun we vowed to play Disruptus once each quarter. She led us through our quarterly Disruptus game in our Oct.
