Tweet Round-up for May 2012

Yet again this week I was asked for a list of books I would recommend to anyone starting out in the fields of Knowledge Ecology, Narrative Landscapes and Innovation Ecosystems. Increasingly my answer is all my aha moments and real turning points in my approach and understanding have been made in my use of Twitter.

I use Twitter as my radar, I have grown a list of individuals who I believe have their fingers on the pulse and readily share what articles, blogposts and resources they find exciting or useful. As I read through my Twitter feed on a morning I myself highlight those that I find most interesting by re-tweeting them to my Twitter feed thereby ‘bookmarking’ them for future access and more crucially sharing these wonderful resources with those who follow me and, my most enjoyable pastime, signifying the resource via hashtags such as #innovation, #storytelling and #complexity so that they can be more widely found by others interested in the subject. I genuinely believe that by being so altruistic, improves the resource for others and that other users will be encouraged to do likewise.

Enough justification, after the wettest April on record I believe May 2012 has been the most fruitful for tweets relating to Innovation so here is my selection of 15 of what I believe to be the best of the best, enjoy:
