Some notes from Disneyland (aka the Academy of Management conference)
August 13, 2008
First time for me at the AoM and it was quite an experience. So, a few initial, quick notes from the poolside in Anaheim.
Daniel and I took part in a session titled Market Devices, which was (apart from a blatant promotion of a book with the same title), actually a very good session. More about this session in a separate post. That session, by the way, was not the best session I attended. In my opinion, the best session was “Financial Markets: an economic sociology perspective”: a set of diverse, but very nice papers, followed by a cracking discussion and comments from Ed Zajac. Again, I will post more about this session later on.
What else? Oh, yeah. We had a little poolside SSF get-together where many of the accomplices in this blog had beers with decent civilians. Among which were representatives of our older brother blog – org theory – Brayden King and Teppo Felin.
