Inspiration - The Force Behind Innovation

Inspiration is a new series of events presented by TiE (The Indus Entrepreneurs)Oregon that will focus on the bedrock of all entrepreneurial endeavors.

However, this series will focus on the creativity that drives the process - the journey, not the destination.

This event will feature two inspired engineers, Ward Cunningham, CTO of AboutUs.org and the engineer who pioneered the technology behind Wikipedia and came up with the term "Wiki", and Matt Tucker, CTO and co-founder of Jive Software. Ward will talk about the inspiration behind the Wiki technology, his journey through its growth and the future of Wikipedia. Matt will discuss collaboration software
