Hi. I'm interested in innovation as positive social change.

I work at 2thinknowTM a global innovation agency. my title is Innovator-in-chief, but really I'm Executive Director.

My work is research, writing, speaking and thinking about Global innovation, including the management of information. I am interested in the management of data across the world, and the raising of intellectual conversation as a desirable outcome for society.

Web communities are growing rapidly, and communities like Library 2.0 allow innovation to span the world. I am interested in hearing from anyone interested in similar topics.

Best Regards

Hi Brian
Thanks for following the link through to the Global innovation Blog.
I like to think of it as thought-provoking, as we are a thinktank, researching innovation and trying to stir up debate,... a little like Tony Blair's favourite thinktank Demos.
Our goal is to create positive social change, through thought-innovation-leadership.
Thanks for reading!
best regards,

Christopher Hire
