What’s this ‘Captain Innovate’ blog all about?

Firstly, my Twitter handle is Captain Innovate so it seemed like a good name for my website.

Secondly, this site is a bit of an experiment from me. I’m really interested in innovation, disruption and the future, and so I’m hoping to use the blog as a forum for sharing musings and thoughts about the future and the changes that are taking place now.

The things I share here will be from me in a personal/professional capacity rather than reflecting anything of my official role. In a work capacity, I’m currently a public servant with the Australian Public Service, but what is shared on this site should not in any way be taken as a reflection of my agency or the government of the day.

(Of course in a world of convergence and dramatic change, there are no clear cut lines and the divides between the professional, the personal and the official can easily blur. Innovation by definition is ambiguous and doesn’t fit neatly into boxes.)

Thirdly, I’m not sure how often I’ll be writing, or what subjects I’ll mainly focus on. I suspect it will adjust over time.

Anyway, this is my first post, and we’ll see how it goes.
