Innovation = Insight, Plan and Commercialization?
“When I use the word innovation, I think of three interlocking components:
- Insight or inspiration suggesting an opportunity to do something different to create value
- An idea or plan to build an offering based on that insight or inspiration
- The translation of that plan into a successful business (in simple terms, commercialization)”

Schedule view in Outlook 2010
The schedule view in Outlook 2010 looks like it could be really useful. I’ve been trying out the Beta version of Outlook 2010 at home with my private email account but not for scheduling meetings with others. Screenshot courtesy of the official blog of the Microsoft Outlook product team. More on schedule view here.
I already can’t wait to move to Outlook 2010 at work, just because of the threaded email conversation view. Not everyone likes it but just from using it on the private account, I know it will make my work inbox easier to manage.
Hören Sie genau zu, was ich sage: Falschspieler sind diejenigen, die nichts als Spiele gewinnen wollen. Die anderen spielen, um zu gewinnen. Wenn jemand sagt: »Das Einzige, was mich interessiert, ist gewinnen«, ist er ein Falschspieler. Denn sein Anliegen impliziert auf diese Weise immer die Möglichkeit des Betrugs.

Eldred King Woodlands in March
It was fun taking a walk with my father-in-law in the Eldred King Woodlands north of Stouffville. Ontario is beautiful. I took a couple snapshots and then experimented with the settings in Lightroom. The results can be seen below.
My favourite photo from our Costa Rica vacation
Not sure what these two monkeys were upset about (while sharing a banana) but it made for a great photo opportunity. I took this photo during a boat tour in Palo Verde national park. More photos from the tour are available here.
