Thought Leaders – Cerf, Sir John, Isaacson

A confluence of events and opportunities has caused me to return to recordings made during Global Learn Day Voyage Ten, October 2004 – to include this one with Sir John Daniel, Vint Cerf, Chief Internet Evangelist, Google, Blaine Berger and Hibbs.

Let us now fast-forward to a video of Vint Cerf, (Google Evangelist) Walter Isaacson and Dr Bob Kahn.

Then let us ask ourselves the this question:

Where is there — is there? – a “Headquarters” where these kinds of thought leaders can comfortably, affordably gather? Where both the ordinary folks and the extraordinary are likely to be?

Where the ideas and arguments advanced by Walter Isaacson in his brand new book The Innovators  could be put on high display? A  very compelling showcase – and stage  –  proving that physical collaboration is the single most powerful ingredient to speed up innovation, invention, disruption.

I believe there is such a place. Ready and waiting for Sir John, Vint and Walt to come there and tell us more on how they could help spearhead this Next Big Thing.
