HR Happy Hour - Episode 47 - 'HR and Indie Culture' Thursday May 27, 2010 - 8PM EDT - Call in 646-378-1086 Indie - the art, music, crafting, building, writing, designing and everything else that gets created independently, outside of the mainstream and continues to evolve and re-invent itself. Indie culture has its roots in the Beat poets of the 50s and stretches to the present day, as thousands of creators make, build, and showcase their ideas and themselves on and offline, and in a scores of constantly changing ways. Why is indie culture, and the indie ethos so enduring and what does it tell us about the modern workplace and the new skills needed to succeed in a global, fast-moving, and constantly changing business world? How does one stay indie once you start climbing up the corporate ladder? Or are big corporate interests always going to see indie creations and ideas as something to 'leverage' and use up? Joining us on the show this week will be Kaya Oakes, author of 'Slanted and Enhchanted: The Evolution of Indie Culture' to talk about the history, development, and current state of indie and help us to understand how the indie ethos is relevant to today's individual and organization. It should be a fun show!
