This is absolutely true and proven by Richard Florida's research and best seller book: "The Rise of the Creative Class."

It is worth a read. Creativity and innovation thrives in areas of great density and like-mindsets.

Listen up companies; anticipate and move your headquarters if you want to thrive.

Hmm. Interesting one to follow. We should see where this leads in 6 to 12 months and if any real benefits are derived.

Carmelo Iaria's insight:

Thanks Vivek for sharing this success story and remind us that "motivated risk-takers" is what's at the core of transformative growth experiments like this. Brazil is trying to follow a similar path but the jury is still out on its achievements

Go Chile! It is about the people.  It always is but we seem to forget that.

All good ideas start with a seed of creativity in the brains of people. Period. Empower people and beautiful things happen. Steve Jobs was an ardent believer on this theory and, well, where did it get him and his brand. 

No other proof needed.

Faster innovation creates organisational challenges for Pay TV | VideoNet

Faster innovation creates organisational challenges for Pay TV | VideoNet | openmind | Scoop.it
Pay TV operators are increasing their rate of innovation, with more use of cloud infrastructure and initiatives like RDK making it possible to make changes more quickly. This brings its own challenges. Some of the executives driving RDK projects outline how their organisations are adapting.
Carmelo Iaria's insight:

The conversation @2014 RDK European Summit this week clearly confirmed the thesis presented in this article. Which is what makes this a very exciting time for the Pay TV market.

Google plans to build their very own superconductor-based quantum computer

Google plans to build their very own superconductor-based quantum computer | openmind | Scoop.it
Hartmut Neven, Director of Engineering for the Quantum Artificial Intelligence team at Google said the team is launching a hardware initiative to design and build new quantum information processors based on superconducting electronics.John Martinis and his team at UC Santa Barbara will join Google in this initiative. Martinis and his group have been building superconducting quantum electronic components of very high fidelity. In April, they announced in Nature that they had developed a superconducting five-qubit array with “an average single-qubit gate fidelity of 99.92 per cent and a two-qubit gate fidelity of up to 99.4 per cent.”“With this new integrated hardware group, Google’s Quantum AI team will now be able to implement and test new designs for quantum optimization and inference processors based on recent theoretical insights as well as their learnings from the D-Wave quantum annealing architecture,” Neven said.“We will continue to collaborate with D-Wave scientists and to experiment with the ‘Vesuvius’ machine at NASA Ames, which will be upgraded to a 1000 qubit ‘Washington’ processor.”
