The opinion of the undersigned
- About getting caught. I.e. knit network, meet people, know companies, know technology, meet colleagues from other parts of the world with common interests and shared problems, to realize that it is not alone in the world. In a period of history that is being given a high profile to virtual social networks, this is a great opportunity for social networks, no less important.
- Learn. I.e., discovering that the tools that one uses can be used for more than one thought. Learn that they can be used in a way more efficient, rapid, agile. Discover that there are more tools which one thought. Discover that some of our problems already them been resolved someone, and that rather than reinvent the wheel...
- Get to know. What is he doing the rest of the world? What does my competition? Where is this world moving? In the knowledge society, not all knowledge is acquired 'on-line'.
- Have fun. Yes, certainly in the midst of a crisis it is bad to say that 'this is fun'. But design, innovate, invent, do new things or give new applications to existing ones, requires a certain State of mind. The good humor, certainly helps reach that State.
The two previous editions which have attended not have been marked by the large number of Spanish participants. We hear and listen to a variety of languages: English, the dominant, Japanese, Indian and Chinese, (it had not always very clear what what) in second position. There were also French, German, English, Portuguese and Italian. And even Czechs, poles and Hungarians. There were also Spanish speakers: Mexicans, Chileans, Argentineans, Peruvians,...
But the Spanish peninsular... heard very little. He was conspicuous by his absence. Does it have something to do with the level of real innovation in this country? So much talk about r & d, why it shows so little in practice?
