remixing innovation

As part of my work with the Connected Learning Research Network,  I have researched creative entrepreneurship and innovation among youth in the city of Austin. From 2013 to 2015 I conducted ethnographic fieldwork following two communities/networks/hubs in Austin, Texas, which actively channeled the creative energies and flows of a city that keeps growing and attracting lots of youngsters from all over the U.S. As a result of the ethnographic research with the local hip hop scene of the Austin Mic Exchange and the indie game designers of the Juegos Rancheros collective, I created a growing list of innovation principles that could be useful for all of us interested in creativity, play, learning, inclusion, and youth-driven entrepreneurship in contemporary societies and economies. You can follow more updates on this research project at the Doing Innovation website.
