When I decided to chair the American Marketing Association Marketing Research Conference a second year, I was excited by the opportunity to get back to Atlanta for several days. It had been years since I'd spent any amount of time in Atlanta, and it was an opportunity to get together with a variety of folks I hadn't seen for a while, or had never met.

In the latter category were Stone Payton and Todd Schnick, the founders of #Innochat on Twitter. #Innochat is a weekly innovation strategy discussion they started in early 2009. It's since moved on to new curators, but it was great after all this time to finally meet Stone and Todd in person. Here's a video recap of the origins of #Innochat and an update on what they are up to now.  - Mike Brown
