Cambridge 100 - promoting innovation in business & technology
Autumn Dinner - with Alan Moore
The speaker for our Autumn Dinner on the 17th September is Alan Moore, who will talk about
how modern organizations are not linear and how mechanist structures give a sense of control to management and staff even though the corporate environment is too complex to have that level of control.
"Alan presents the current array of economic problems as a design challenge, where what is being redesigned is the organisation of our economy as a whole. Insanely ambitious, but I rather like that. In sum: ‘Imagine the impossible, then create it.’ Our hero Danny Boyle would agree.” Diane Coyle, OBE; Vice Chairman BBC Trust; Economist.
"Alan Moore is a visionary, someone who takes concepts from many sources and finds the previously hidden relationship between them. He has a firm grasp of the changes which are reshaping our world, always pointing towards a more participatory, cooperative, reciprocal model of what our society might look like’. Henry Jenkins,De Florz Chair of the Comparative Media Studies Program MIT.
