Feeling fortunate

I just got the following e-mail

Dear Euan,

Thank you for agreeing to be a storyteller at BIF-3, the Business Innovation Factory’s Collaborative Innovation Summit on October 10-11, 2007 hosted by Wall Street Journal columnist Walt Mossberg and Mavericks at Work author Bill Taylor.

You will be an amazing addition to this year’s slate of storytellers—a group that includes Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, Ghost Map author and co-creator of outside.in Steven Johnson, Studiocom chief creative officer Juan Fernando Santos, information architect Richard Saul Wurman, BzzAgent founder and CEO Dave Balter, author and Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen, Tellart co-founder and creative director Matt Cottam, Made to Stick author Dan Heath, founder of the gethuman project Paul English, Linear Air president and CEO William Herp, Andrew Hargadon author and associate professor UC-Davis Graduate School of Management, TopCoder founder and chairman Jack Hughes and founder of Zipcar and GoLoco Robin Chase.

The BIF-3 Summit is no ordinary conference. It’s a unique two-day conversation about innovation, driven by the personal stories of innovators from across the public and private sector. Why did an innovation succeed or fail? How did you create an innovation opportunity? What have you learned along the way?

As a consequence of my participation I have one free ticket to give away to anyone who can afford the trip to Providence Rhode Island in October and who contacts me.
