The folks over at Kfé Innovación asked me to do some interviews for them with movers, shakers & innovators, so here's the first one with Peter Corbett, CEO of iStrategyLabs and founder of Apps For Democracy. The post over on the Kfé Innovación site has a transcript in English and links to a Spanish translation – check it out here.
Tomorrow I'm off to the freezing cold city that is Sevilla to facilitate a session in the Kfé Innovación/Innovation Cafe. I'll be riffing on new paradigms, disruptive technology, the creation of memory and the destruction of heirachies. Or something like that. Here's an inteview I did with @margaojeda which introduces the gig (in Spanish). It's going to be hotter than hell so I'm gonna need me to get me some cooool tapas 😉
Ana was in Seville last week to take part in the first Kfé Innovación . Over coffee Ana facilitated the 3 hour session on the concept of innovation and how the internet can be the perfect stage for social & business development.
The idea of the café is to get some "experts" to sit down with a maximum of 10 interested people from business, education and the public sector and have a real particatory discussion about what innovation means to them and how they can use creative ideas in future projects. The event is organised by Kpacita a Seville and Catalonia based company who want to rethink "conventional" wisdom both for themselves & their clients.
Over coffee Ana will be facilitating the 3 hour session today on the concept of innovation and how the internet can be the perfect stage for social & business development (Kfé Innovación blog post – in Spanish). On June 9th our mate Enric Senabre will introduce a discussion on social networks and knowledge networks, and on June 23rd, I'll be getting plenty of tapas provoking everyone about online contacts, social networks and the crossover IRL (In Real Life).
It'll be interesting to see how the format works and hopefully the typical event of experts and public will be replaced by collaborative thinking and a lot of crowdsourced, practical conclusions. Hats off to Kpacita for taking the risk and hopefully the Seville experts can guarantee me some excellent tapas…
