A short post this week as we’re really busy working on some exciting developments here at Solverboard: Solverboard Social, our sponsorship of Social Media Week South West, and lots more. So we’re just going to point you to a great interview with Barack Obama, MIT Media Lab director Joi Ito, and Scott Dadich from WIRED. Once again, the outgoing President demonstrates his deep understanding of the tech sector, and how government should be involved in supporting and promoting new developments, making research open to all, and thinking about the impacts on society, jobs and people. Well worth a read if you have some time with a cup of tea on a Friday.

I'm interested in everything, but particularly in innovation, technology and intra/entrepreneurship. I can (and will!) chat with anyone, whether in a boardroom, meeting room, classroom or just over a beer. I love finding out about people, ideas and organisations and creating stories to connect them all.
