We want to hear what you make. Because the people who make stuff - the artists, business owners, entrepreneurs and dreamers - are the people who actually make up the larger economy.So this year we began recording stories about what you make in our listening booth. You can hear them below, and subscribe to our "Makers" podcast series on the right.If you'd like to host the listening booth at your event, drop us a line.

Our first listening booth story comes to you from TEDxRochester.

Elouise Oyzon makes fun things. 

The Innovation Trail caught up with Oyzon in our listening booth at TEDxRochester in November 2011.  She told us about her efforts to make her workplace as fun as possible, through a pilot project at the Rochester Institute of Technology called "Just Press Play."

The Microsoft-sponsored project adds a "game layer" to the college experience, giving students a chance to win "achievements," for engaging "in a playful way with their educational environments and experiences."

Like the music? It's Buffalo-based Fourem's "Voyage to the Center of the Lung."

Want to learn more about Just Press Play? Here's the full-length interview with Elouise Oyzon - but caution, some of the language is not safe for work.
