Complacency is the biggest challenge.
Tody Fadell, co-founder, Nest
So, what's this all about? Historically, America and Silicon Valley in particular have been the world's innovation epicenter. We made man fly, we went to the moon, we made electricity a reality. We made cars affordable, discovered the semiconductor, put a computer in every American house and a cellphone in every pocket. So, what's the problem? Now that we've explored the whole world, that our cars can't go any faster and that we live a pretty comfortable life, we have become complacent. Our innovators no longer innovate. Today's most exciting startups make Farmville and Angry Birds. So, what do we do about it? We need to start striving for the moon again, to set ourselves lofty goals and push humanity forward.
