Abstract: 

Naming The New: How to Name Your Innovation

What do you call a thing that’s never been called anything before? In this talk, you’ll learn how to name and describe an innovation. Anthony Shore will illustrate the principles and practice of brand naming using case histories of innovations he’s named, like Jaunt VR, the Lytro light field camera, and the forthcoming Cinder sensing cooker. Expect to laugh, to cry, and to learn a lot about naming things. Especially the crying part, because naming is really hard.
