Podcast: What Innovators Can Learn from Hollywood - Keynote by Scott Kirsner

This 45 minute podcast features a keynote address by Scott Kirsner, Columnist for the Boston Globe, recorded at the NERCOMP 2008 Annual Meeting in Providence, Rhode Island. The speech is entitled, "What Innovators Can Learn from Hollywood".

Technology innovators sometimes expect that users will embrace new ideas and new tools with open arms. In reality, most innovations are met with hostility and indifference, and it can take a lengthy campaign to persuade organizations to change the way they work. In an illustrated spin through Hollywood history, journalist and author Scott Kirsner will demonstrate how innovators like Pixar, George Lucas, and Bing Crosby (yes, "Mr. White Christmas") have changed the movie industry while facing enormous resistance. He'll also describe the three kinds of people that exist in every organization and some of the key reasons people tend to rebel (or go into a shell) when confronted with a new piece of technology.
