What innovation are you most thankful for? - Gobble-TovGobble-Tov!

In the United States we are about to celebrate our annual Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, where families and friends reconnect and reconvene to share a big meal (often including turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie), to read, to watch movies, or possibly to watch some American Football.

But most importantly, we all come together to share what we are thankful for.

This year, the Thanksgiving holiday happens to intersect for our Jewish friends (we’re friends with everyone), with the holiday of Hanukkah, or Chanukah. So some people get to celebrate their thanks and their miracles on the same day!

Personally, we are thankful for you, the members of the Global Innovation Community, who continue to work tirelessly to make the world a better and more innovative place.

To celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday we though it might be fun to ask you:

What innovation are you most thankful for?

    Happy Thanksgiving and Thanksgivakkuh to the staff of Innovation Excellence, who have created one of the most innovative and forward-thinking innovation platforms and communities in the history of innovation!

    There are so many product innovations I’m grateful for, it’s hard to single out one. Like most of us, I’m immensely grateful for the innovation of the personal computer, especially current laptops and mobile devices. Being a writer, editor, musician and multimedia artist, it would be impossible to do the work I do at any reasonable speed without these innovations. I’ll include the necessary software and apps as part of this innovation ecosystem (particularly the Apple i-ecosystem, which I use daily).

    We all have to be immensely grateful for all the advances in medicine, healthcare and life sciences of the last century, particularly, and I think that is an area where we’ll see amazing innovation in the upcoming decades. If you don’t have your health or your family’s health at an optimum level, nothing else is possible.

    Finally, the innovation that really matters to all of us the most is community. Without an authentic, trustworthy community of our fellow humans, we would not be able to innovate in any other area. Indeed, the future of our planet depends on our collective ability to form purposeful communities to create solutions to our most pressing problems on earth, and to collaborate to develop and implement real solutions. The social networks and technology that enable our ability to create such communities is perhaps the most valuable innovation of our time. Let us continue to use our collaborative communities for purposes of highest learning, effective social innovation, and furthering a hopeful future for the generations that follow us. Innovative communities will sustain the earth. Happy Holidays!

    P.S. to my last comment — in addition to my work in the arts, the innovation of the personal computer ecosystem, healthcare innovations, and innovative collaborative communities are also essential to my business projects as Chief Imagination Officer, Innovation and Social Business Consultant, Innovation Program Designer and Executive Coach, at Creative Sage™.
