Innovation and unconventional thinking as applied to the desktop metaphor.  The motto of one entrepreneurial  company is “Lets have fun – and make money.”  When I saw this demo of BumpTop I knew Anand was, at least, having fun.  Check out the demo at TED on BumpTop.

I am filing this entry under “Playful”.
