BREAKING: Dustin Haisler, former wunderkind of Manor, to speak at The City Club

From The City Club of Cleveland website:

Inevitable: How Disruptive Shifts In Technology and Behavior Are Redefining Cities Across The Globe

Dustin Haisler

Chief Innovation Officer, e.Republic

New technologies and disruptive trends are radically reshaping the face of cities across the globe. As an increasing number of cities are confronted by new economic forces, such as Uber and Airbnb, organizations are being forced to react and respond within this new and unfamiliar landscape. These new challenges force us to ask, how do we make sense of it all?

Dustin Haisler, Chief Innovation Officer of e.Republic, has been studying human behavior and disruptive technologies for the past decade. As an early pioneer of crowdsourcing, open innovation and gamification, Mr. Haisler will open up his years of research and provide a look into the underlying trends and technologies that are disrupting the status quo and what you can do to take advantage of them.

I often tweet, “How geeky am I? I’m so geeky…” like this from last night.

But I’d bet money that only the truly public service-oriented civic tech geeks immediately recognized the names, Dustin Haisler and Manor, Texas. And it’s because of articles like this one from 2009, “Dustin Haisler: 22-Year-Old CIO Innovates on a Shoestring” and about the lessons learned when it comes to changing defaults and embedding a culture that supports the successes obtained when you change those defaults (aka sustainability). This 2012 follow up includes Haisler’s thoughts on why the gains he made at Manor didn’t last past his departure.

You can read more about what Dustin has done and is now doing here. Then, register and come hear him in person at The City Club of Cleveland on Thursday, July 16.
