I am always looking for new ideas, new concepts and upcoming technology. TED (http://www.ted.com/) is a great source of new ideas on an international level and I have written about TED in my Newsletter.
Locally, you might consider looking at Ideas Boston (http://www.ideasboston.com/). Ideas Boston sponsored by a variety of influential partners such as The Boston Globe, WBUR, Comcast, State Street Bank, IBM, etc. was created by The Boston Globe in 2004. As a non-profit organization, it promotes innovation, diseminates new ideas and hosts an annual conference of cutting-edge thinkers. Have a look and a listen.
