I’m excited to see your success with your ideas, and maybe even one day attend one of those dinners.
I really am interested to see how our relationship with food changes by the year 2050, as you predicted ” people may become even more disconnected from their diets with automation.” I think that as right now, we are already very disconnected from food production, and as everything becomes more technological our relationship with food will shrink. However, with your innovation this year, having personal indoor farms would really change how we see food.
I wish you the best of luck with the next 32 years (and on), and hope that you will maintain this passion for change and the Global Challenge.
Megan

Comment on Lohr-a-Lee Interview by Quinn Ceplis http://ivansavy.ucalgaryblogs.ca/2018/03/04/lohr-a-lee-interview/#comment-20 Mon, 09 Apr 2018 17:56:59 +0000 http://ivansavy.ucalgaryblogs.ca/?p=110#comment-20 Especially in the context of your innovation, I found your reframing of the question of “A challenge many wouldn’t consider” to “What were the greatest challenges you faced, and how did you overcome them?” to be significant. Because hydroponics, aquaponics, and vertical farming are such new fields, almost all of the challenges faced are challenges many wouldn’t consider. Your follow-up question on how these challenges were overcome, as well as your technical topics, serve as a great way to leapfrog to the cutting edge of these fields. Knowledge sharing across all professions is an integral part of the innovation process, and your questions cut right to the heart of that process.
A question I’d be curious to know the answer to is if the specificity of your interview questions allowed for a transition into topics not originally thought of. Did you place more weight on answering each question, or letting the conversation flow freely? To what extent did time play a factor in that dichotomy?
Altogether, these questions are great, and I cannot wait to see the video of your interview!
