CoffeeCAST – #49 – Teradata Partners 2007 – Wednesday Closing General Session


Welcome to the 49th CoffeeCAST with Stephen Hayward of Project X Ltd. Live from Las Vegas.

Hello again from Vegas – baby.  We are coming close to covering the end of a great week at the Teradata 2007 Partners
event.  The closing session was great, Graham and I continue with some discussion on the closing session.

This was an inspiring session which had the theme of innovation.  So before we go on to our last CoffeeCAST in regards to this event, here is the discussion that Graham and I had after the session by Dean Kamen (most notably known for the invention of the Segway, but the least of his advances)

  1. Innovation versus Invention
  2. Innovation is more about surprises (negative) what he refers to as rude realities of issues which are unforeseen
  3. Seven Rude Realities
  4. Three Suggestions
  5. Introduction to Deka Research and Development Corporation
  6. A very fast overview of FIRST – For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology a great and fast growing movement to bring the ‘bling’ into Science and Technology

    I was trying to make some notes on the Dean Kamen talk. It was really useful to go back and listen to this coffee cast again.
