> Hello everybody,
> We have many working groups here including those in open sustainability,
> design, data, spending, and more.
> Do you think it will be make Open Knowledge better if we had a separate
> working group on *Open Innovation*? After all, innovation is a buzz word
> in today's world in all fields. Disruption, Democratization, Demonetization
> happening all over places.
> Open Innovation is in line with Open Knowledge's vision of *enabling
> people to work together to tackle local and global challenges*.
> Innovation, though cross-cutting by definition, is a powerful concept on
> its own. Innovations happen everywhere in multiple forms, and this may make
> a case that innovation will be covered in all other groups separately.
> However, a very interesting thing is that numerous innovations follow
> similar patterns.
> Process of innovation (mostly) begins with problems, happens with thinking
> out of the box or thinking  of different boxes entirely, and making the
> thoughts real and seeing magic happen (not to forget the hard parts like
> persevering, critical thinking).
> Let's discuss whether having a separate working group will help the cause
> of Open Knowledge better and whether we really need a new working group in
> Open Innovation.
