Hour 1: Hacking Innovation: Josh Linkner’s Newest Best Seller
To Josh Linkner, creativity and innovation are the lifeblood of all human progress, and as such, he’s spent his career harnessing the spirit of creative disruption. His journey has been non-traditional at every step: he’s been a professional jazz guitarist, 4-time tech entrepreneur, hyper-growth CEO, New York Times bestselling author, venture capitalist, and urban reinventor. Today, Linkner leads Detroit Venture Partners, helping to rebuild his hometown of Detroit, Michigan, by backing passionate entrepreneurs who can make an impact through their own innovative ideas. He is also a thought leader and top-rated keynote speaker on innovation, creativity, and reinvention. Linkner has written two books – Disciplined Dreaming: A Proven System to Drive Breakthrough Creativity and The Road to Reinvention: How to Drive Disruption and Accelerate Transformation. He’s on a mission to drive creativity, innovation, and reinvention. And yes, he still plays a mean jazz guitar. LinkedIn

DIA staffers, Richard Scott, Dir. of IT and Megan DiRienzo, DIA interpretive planner, joined us in studio with Lumin, a device that is designed to add Augmented Reality interpretive information to some of the art displays.
Here Lumin shows what is inside the mummy case on display from Ancient Eygpt and in another display, Lumin shows what an ancient Mesopotamian gate would have looked like.
Caston Thomas, CEO of InterWorks, is a noted cybersecurity expert from the Ann Arbor area who has been called the Chuck Norris of Securing and Managing Mobile and Networks. There are new forms of ransomeware that now lock out your entire operating system unless you pay up.
Caston also explained the new wireless protocol 802.11 AC Wave.
