    Meet a Game Changer: Bob Metcalfe

    Published: Feb. 24, 2012

    Professor of Innovation Bob Metcalfe is the Murchison Fellow of Free Enterprise at The University of Texas at Austin’s Cockrell School of Engineering. He is the inventor of today’s local-area networking standard, Ethernet.

    Innovation makes the world go round. It gives us freedom and prosperity. One form of innovation is driven by startups – entrepreneurial, technological innovation at scale – particularly at research universities, such as The University of Texas at Austin.

    Metcalfe calls the people who start up startups “founderati.”

    On Tuesday, Feb. 28, at 6:30 p.m. as part of the university’s Game Changers series, join Metcalfe as he discusses how to be “founderati” and practice the art of operating the exquisite machinery of free enterprise.

    Game Changers brings The University of Texas at Austin’s intellectual talent beyond the classroom with a live 60-minute show that will also be broadcast on the Longhorn Network.

    The talk is in Studio 6A at the KLRU studios in the Jesse H. Jones Communications Center B on The University of Texas at Austin campus.

    Sign up to attend this Game Changers taping.
