Mothers of Innovation

Mothers of Innovation (via Nesta)
“Mothers sharing their experiences is an activity that has traditionally been dismissed as nattering, gossiping over the garden fence, parish pump chatter. We live with assumptions that date back to Victorian economics – that what happens in the domestic sphere is economically unproductive and requires no particular expertise. Yet theories of innovation would seem to suggest that networks, empathy and the ability to nurture human capital are crucial to turning good ideas into real change.”
