One of biggest problems is that we are so easily impressed with new technology and we haven’t yet learned to fully apply that which is current. For that reason, those older cities that are so reliant on manufacturing, when much of that industry moves away, the cities seem to be at a tremendous loss as to how to move forward. We need in all our regions to use our brainpower, to learn how technologies and manufactured goods can be best applied.
Lets learn how to use what we have and how use it better and in new ways. Like open source in software, opportunity and money is in the application, not in the software itself.
It is important to look for new innovative products, which is where the flash is, but we need more of how to use products to their best advantage.
