Gifford Pinchot the III is a innovation guru who helps businesses understand how they can be both environmentally and financially successful. Most business gurus of that ilk make me want to gouge out both the profit and environmental centers of my brain and run screaming to a mountain top commune. However, this A World of Possibilities interview with him is quite charming. I don’t know if I learned much, but I had a good time, gouged nothing, and ran nowhere.
“If we double the horsepower of all the cars in our society, there wouldn’t be any more women.”
A World of Possibilities is doing a series on innovation (I wonder if Thom Princen knows all the interviewees). This episode is excellent too, particularly the first half with David Korten, and I think I learned some things.
