INOV8 Links: Why Innovation Thrives in Cities, Bourbon & Boots, Pizza Copter
It’s Friday (let’s pretend it’s black), so go ahead — do just what you please and by all means, ditch those socks and shoes. We give you this week’s INOV8 Links:
- Why does innovation thrive in cities? More access to face-to-face human interaction? More access to technology? Softball leagues? Chinese food? Yeah, that’s gotta be it. MIT researchers venture an answer here.
- Technology is transforming business in four ways, according to Innovation Excellence. None of them have anything to do with a glossy new shine, either. Here they are.
- We’ll see your Garden & Gun and raise you some Bourbon & Boots. The latter is a Little Rock-based startup from founder Matt Price (formerly an IA client with Capsearch). B&B brings the most interesting things from the South to the world of online shopping, plus it has a library of some very good Southern stories to share. It’s going strong and really worth a visit. One of its latest wares is this painted vinyl record bowl. Hello, Father’s Day, anyone? What else are you gonna do with that old LP that’s too scratched up to play? Do this, then frame the cover…
- Pizza delivery by drone? Sure, why not? Domino’s is testing the Domicopter. Yes, the Domicopter. BloombergBusinessweek has more here. They seem to be back to that whole 30-minutes-or-less thing…
- Finally, and you may have seen this already, Business Insiders brings us 22 maps that show how we Americans sometimes don’t speak the same language. Very interesting stuff. For the record, we say crawdad, coke for any drink south of liquor, and caramel (three syllables). Mmmm. A Coke and some caramel. We could do that.
