Ecologies of innovation
I just saw a reference by Mitch Kapor to "ecologies of innovation", whatever that really is.
Maybe it's a reference to an "ecosystem of innovation" or an "ecosystem for innovation".
Whatever it is, I suspect that we all need to get more of it.
In any case, from my perspective the question is what technologies and tools are needed to support such ecologies or ecosystems. My belief is that intelligent software agent technology will fit at least part of the bill.
