This Monday and Tuesday (October 29 and 30) I will be at the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) conference in Geneva on IP and the Creative Industries.

The provisional program includes an array of exciting issues such as the birth of creativity, knowledge and cultural capital, the ever ellusive concept of measurement, the legal framework, online content distribution etc.

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations. It is dedicated to developing a balanced and accessible international intellectual property (IP) system, which rewards creativity, stimulates innovation and contributes to economic development while safeguarding the public interest.

I can now hear the howls of my free-art-for-all friends and the applause of my technocrat friends. I should placate you all equally so note that I will be there with my academic hat on and that I hope the conference will be a good insight into how an organisation that supports IP as a way to stimulate innovation sees things. In reality I know both sides of the argument about the stimulants of innovation. Contemplating it (even academically) for some years now I still have not arrived to a strong position.

If you’d like to follow the conference with me please subscribe to this RSS Feed and keep on checking come Monday.

Every day - while I am at the Conference - there will be a “Day Post” with the program and my notes under each entry but I also plan to upload some thoughts and analysis. Ideally there will be some podcasts of interviews and points of view which I will upload after I return.

Please take a look at the conference programme and tell me if there is anything that specifically interests you - I will try to cover it more extensively. Leave a comment below or e-mail me at sofiak @ gmail . com

Needless to say if any of you are going to be there give me the heads up.

To answer your invitation Ms. Gkigousou, what would be of interest to me in such a conference, is the role of reason (understood holistically and thus including imagination and emotions)in the creative process; something that has been briefly discussed and analyzed in Ovi.

I trully hope that something like that was covered at the conference but sadly no. It was all a bit simplistic if you ask me so I'm sorry that I couldn't get this covered (even though I love the question)
