Disobedience + Innovation: Inspiring Change

I will be a part of a panel discussion on disobedience and innovation at the Eyebeam Art and Technology Center this October 28th. Please come by to engage what will surely be a lively discussion and investigation of the benefits and pitfalls of progressive civil disobedience.
In collaboration with Emerging Leaders of New York Arts, Eyebeam has invited Katyal and a group of artists, innovators, writers, and activists to discuss their views on the relationship between forms of civil disobedience and innovation. Some questions we’re asking are: What role does disobedience play in inducing innovation, and who lives in the grey areas of the law? Is innovation always a social practice? What makes an initiative successful - is it larger systemic change or policy change? Broader awareness? Hits? Links? Reblogs/tweets? How does financial viability come into play when looking toward innovation? What about productivity, innovation, and the arts--how can some forms of disobedience play a role in furthering creativity?
