    • Creating the Right Space to Foster a Spirit of Innovation


      from I-Open Added

      Dr. Thomas J Allen, Margaret MacVicar Faculty Fellow, Howard W. Johnson Professor of Management, Emeritus, MIT Sloan School of Management, talks about his seminal research documenting the value of companies and people working in close proximity to nurture innovation. Tom Allen's work formulated the idea of the Allen Curve - a simple understanding that the closer people and companies are located the more cross fertilization of ideas, network building, talent exchange, and enterprise results. Dr. Allen's research supports the success in regional technology business building at the Youngstown Business Incubator, Youngstown, Ohio and the Charleston Digital Corridor, Charleston, South Carolina - locations driven by investment in Quality, Connected Places and resulting in cool surroundings where people and companies want to be!

              from Dennis Ko Added 50 0 0

              Marshall with his sweet stroke clobbers the ball over the fence in our softball game. He really did "hit one for YouTube". If you can't see the ball, take my word for it, or watch the outfielder run up to the fence, realizing it went over.

Evelyn Eastmond (evelyn.aquapixel.net) has been a member of the Scratch team in the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab for six years: first as an undergraduate researcher, then graduating with an MEng in Computer Science and now working fulltime as a developer for Scratch. Splitting her time between her home in Madison, WI and the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge. She continues to learn and grow as Scratch itself evolves and is excited to connect with Scratch and *art and code* enthusiasts from all corners of the world. Evelyn is currently teaching herself Flex, Processing and other cool things. Videography: Amanda Long and Michael Pisano.
