Thoughts on Open Innovation

Thoughts On Open Innovation” is a collection of essays considering open innovation with an eye to a) the effects of open innovation on every day life and b) the sorts of legislation that would support and sustain it. The collection is now available in paperback form via Lulu as well as in PDF form from Openforum Academy, the publishers of the title. Simon’s essay “No One Speaks For Me: The Legislative Disconnect Of The Meshed Society” is included as part of the collection. His essay looks at the concept of a meshed society and at some of the ways in which the old world naturally excludes and even fights the onset of the new. The collection as a whole is intended to form part of Openforum Academy’s policy outreach with a view to delivering “a snapshot of important developments for policy-makers, business leaders and researchers to consider.”
