Friday roundup May 12, 2006Posted by Tom in Economic Development, Housekeeping, Innovation, Workforce.
I’m trying to spin through the links on the sidebar on a near-daily basis – It doesn’t take that long to do, and the quality of the links generally means that something good will come of the effort. Here’s the info that bubbled to the top with today’s review:
1. In “It’s the Ecomony, Stupid,” David Campbell offers up the dual question of whether the Irish government’s opening up their universities to their citizens for free was the stimulus for their remarkable recent growth…and whether such an idea would work in Nova Scotia (where the blogger is based).
2. The “Business Innovation Insider” has its own list of links for the day, but I’d click on the link to see the “The Koolaid Point.” Gladwell’s got nothing on this concept!
3. TechDirt claims that innovation is a process, not a single event. Good point, and well written!
