THE SPARK

Hello!

The light bulb has not only been a great invention but has stayed a symbol for every new idea. The Internet is the other invention that has changed the way we communicate and even the way we live.

The featured innovation is an attempt to bring the Light Bulb and the Internet together. The banner image features a bunch of light bulbs and a LiFi ASIC, a purpose built LiFi silicone which was developed by pureLiFi. This company is working on transmission of data through light.

The featured blogs this edition covers how the power of thinking and demonstration of innovation with human values determines the quality of leadership. Many lessons to learn from legends who have tread the path of leadership..

We have references to interesting articles around the web which may inspire you to learn about measuring impact of our ideas, how great leaders are teachers, how people stay productive, and how to capitalize on your team’s diversity.

As a parting note, is it not a good thing if someone says they have ‘no idea’ when we all believe an idea can change the world. Does it sound like a paradox? We are happy if we get you thinking.
