Hey folks - I recently had the opportunity to present at The Academy of Technology on the topic of The Democratisation of Innovation. Its a topic which is hugely exciting to me - as its all about changing our society at a fundamental level - moving from the old model where there are a tightly controlled set of innovators and a huge number of consumers, to a model where everyone can and does innovate.
As we will see this is down to a number of factors such as peer funding, disparate but hugely collaborative environments, but most of all in my opinion, access to cheap, powerful and consumable technology (such as BlueMix) which acts as a canvas for our would be innovators.
I hope you enjoy reading about it as much as I enjoyed putting it together...
