Where does the innovation rubber meet the road? A recent article identifies an important aspect of innovation, based on the example of a significant move in decades of rivalry between ARM and Intel for chips for mobile systems. During this #innochat, let's discuss the contrast between hype and reality.

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.

This week Ogilvy & Mather, @Ogilvy, shut down Ogilvy Labs, @OgilvyLabs. Laboratories for innovation, set up by a variety of organizations to increase innovation activity, generate plenty of interest and support. But what are they for, how do they operate, and how do they perform? Let's discuss innovation labs, their purpose, and their performance, during #innochat at 12 noon Eastern time on Thursday August 11.
