Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

Post Meta :

I saw this link on Twitter a couple of days ago.  Or maybe it was Facebook. Or maybe it came to me while looking at the pattern of bird droppings on my workplace window. 

I’d not heard of Barry Nalebuff before, but I really enjoyed this ~1hr long presentation he gave about innovation, ingenuity and general insights on solving problems.

Watch it on Academic Earth

I can say for sure I’ll never eat a banana the same way again.

Barry & Co runs an Open Source Idea site called http://whynot.net. When I get some more time I plan on spending a little bit over there to participate. I’ve been thinking that idea and innovation could easily be something opened up to the masses, so I’m glad someone acted on it.

And lo, the people did comment thus:

      Sybil Law – if you don’t get a chance to watch it, at least know that you should eat a banana upside down. Or, start watching around 22:00.

    This actually sounds like something I would love… I will have to come back later to watch it when I have more time though.

    I just finished watching it… He isn’t a very dynamic speaker really, but his ideas and his ideas about getting ideas are great. The maternity MBA is brilliant really. I wish he’d done a recap at the end. I was multitasking and I feel like I should go back and take notes.

Want to comment?

Hey, we all want to share our voice. And I particularly love comments, especially if you took the time to read my blog entry. I'll take the time to read your comment, I swear! But due to spammers, robots, and the fact that I want my blog to be PG rated, I need to approve the comments. This should be same day, but please don't get mad if it takes me a while to approve the comment.


PLEASE help keep this blog family-friendly by refraining from profanity and vulgarity.
