You probably remember reading something about GE’s ecomagination challenge. We’ve written about it a few times and it’s been advertised all over the internet. Well, wrapping up it’s second phase, GE is hosting a live conversation with leading innovators for 8 hours tomorrow on its website.

GE wrote in an email to me (and others, of course):
