In this episode I talk to Jude Gomilla about distributed innovation systems focused especially around the bottom-up response to the coronavirus crisis. Jude is a physicist, founder and CEO of the knowledge compilation platform Golden, and a prolific angel investor. He’s also been in the thick of the distributed response to the coronavirus response from day one.

Key Takeaways

- Twitter is shockingly important as a coordination tool.
- The concept of centralized top-down problem statements coupled with distributed bottom up solutions may be under explored.
