Henry Sauermann: The CCC is a unique opportunity to interact with dear friends and get to know the next generation of scholars. It is a great way to be exposed to cutting edge research across a variety of areas of research and to learn from participants who take great pride in providing presenters with constructive feedback. However, this year’s highlight for me was a session to celebrate Dick Nelson. I had read many of his papers and books, yet this session brought it all together – facilitated by great panelists who, through their own journeys and accomplishments, were in the position to appreciate and uniquely convey the magnitude of Dick’s contributions to the study of innovation and technological change. I am deeply grateful to be part of this amazing community.
