Spent much of the morning at a NESTA summit on innovation in the public service sector, launching The Lab. All going quite well until Gordon Brown and entourage crashed into the proceedings. In the context of what Team Obama are aiming to do in the USA, the Brownian offerings seemed lacklustre. I left. Then went across to Oxford to speak at the Said Business School. Supper with Pamela (Hartigan) and Geoff (Lye), then home. The ruffian count on the train was uncomfortably high, but I buried myself in the latest issue of Fast Company, which spotlights the Fast Company 50 innovative companies. Five of them also appear in our Phoenix 50, which will be announced at the Said Business School during the Skoll World Forum at the end of the month.
