In a major development on the heels of his announcement he'll compete against multiple leading companies pursuing "new mood enhancing technology", Marshall Barnes is one of 25 innovators to tell their stories at a major innovation event in Boston.

The fact that Marshall will be appearing, with such an august cast of new thinkers and creatives, is a testament to the effectiveness of his campaign, once thought by some to be qxiotic, but is shaping up to be more along the lines of an Alexander the Great conquest - 2012 proving Stephen Hawking wrong six ways to Sunday, 2013 beating Dr. Ronald Mallett in the race to build the first time machine and proving that he has the only viable technology for warp drive to the faces of some of his competition at the 100 Year Starship Symposium where he was invited by director Mae Jemison, and now announcing the he will be a contender in the race to develop new mood enhancing technologies instead of attempting to assist the multiple leading companies that are now seeking technical input in that area. And those are just the highlights.
"Right now there is a lot of chatter about a plethora of things that people are grasping at - thinking that they will lead to greater innovations"
"The disruptive innovation, and I mean on the cutting edge, would be to find the weaknesses, flaws, the counterproductive loopholes in all of that, and launch a counter effort disrupting the more collective groupthink, offering not only a new vision but a new reality because of the effective application of that disruption to what was just being established. So it is a completely different paradigm which doesn't come from within the groupthink collective".
"In some ways I've already done this," he continued, "because no one thought that I'd be able to accomplish what I already have and the full effects haven't been felt yet from that - but they will be soon, and they will be disruptive in some circles on an unprecedented level. Proving that Stephen Hawking isn't the most intelligent mind on the planet will have a powerful disruptive effect in many areas, physics, education, psychology and even PR and marketing. But that's only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. I'm going to be doing it at the International Space Development Conference in Los Angeles, where I'll be going after I leave the innovation event in Boston, and at the ISDC I'll be presenting a very cogent paper on how my Verdrehung Fan™ represents the first tangible possibility for the engineering of traversable wormholes. If that can be accomplished, it will open up the galaxy for potential exploration on a scale only imagined as a far, distant possibility. How innovative is that?
"My rock hero of my teenage years was Todd Rundgren, who not only was the original source of much of what I learned about innovation, but who also said that he wanted to change the world. I'm going to".
Both Alexander the Great and Todd Rundgren are mentioned in Marshall's innovation story for the Boston event, which is a two part tale of overcoming opposition and achieving victory through the application of advanced creative thinking, of which Marshall has proved, beyond any doubt, that he is a master of.
At the Boston event, attendees will be able to mill about and converse with Marshall and the other 24 storytellers, trying to understand each of their own unique experiences and perspectives and there will be a panel discussion as they did in New York, by Whitney Johnson with Eric Apse, Jeff Avallon, Hutch Carpenter, Judith E. Glaser, Rabbi Irwin Kula, and Hitendra Patel.
