I'm running a little experiment every Friday at noon: a weekly live webcast that'll run down the top five innovation economy stories of the week. Each Friday, I have a different co-host. And in addition to discussing that week's big stories, we talk about some of the events that we're looking forward to in the week ahead.
I hope you'll tune in, or watch once it's archived, and serve up some feedback. If you're watching live, you can use the Ustream client to send us messages — like suggesting stories that we've missed, or events that you're planning to attend. We'll try to weave those into the webcast, too.
You can watch the latest episode above, or at Ustream.
I've got a few co-hosts lined up, including:
April 13: Antonio Rodriguez of Matrix Partners (@antrod)
April 20: TechStars Boston managing director Katie Rae (@ktrae)
April 27: Daphne Zohar, co-founder of PureTech Ventures (@daphnezohar)
