For those of you who missed our recent Google+ Hangout, let us fill you in on what RocketSpace has been up to over the last week.
Last Wednesday, our intrepid CEO, Duncan Logan, joined 129 brilliant minds on the British Airways UnGrounded flight from SF to London to address a global problem: what do we do about the shortage of engineers.
Over the course of the 12 hour trip, participants ranging from Craigslist’s founder to the former environmental adviser to President Obama, brought their creativity and innovative minds together to create potential solutions – without access to the Internet. Ideas were presented at the Decide Now Act (DNA) Summit in London.
