  • Software: bottom-up AND top-down, professional contributors despite hobbyist reputations, had clear value message, and you won’t realize when you’ve won Media (music and movies): generational, middlemen/gatekeepers are impediments, value chain Journalism: form vs function (unbundling quality & reputation from publication)
  • went through those phases over TEN YEARS
  • another place to look for inspiration eg small is agile, can be inhibited by non-agile big who use IP to prevent competition embrace competition for commercialisation (invent faster, build brand, iterate) but specifically
  • because science is mixture of enterprise/business AND social good
  • example: drinking straws
  • how many times have you sat in traffic, crawling to/from the bridge or the gully or whatever your traffic chokepoint is, staring at all these one-person cars, as a deadline looms and you can see you’re going to miss your meeting, calling ahead to say “look, sorry, I’m stuck in this bloody traffic”
  • Teachers do awesome stuff lean manufacturing lean startup lean teaching
  • talk between the meeting ("sing")
  • do one small thing (open access, open data, open research), then talk about it ("dance")
  • identify the unconvinced influencer whose arms you'll twist to attend next year ("grow the choir")
