I want to share with the reader some thoughts that came to my mind during the brief time I spent at the Singularity University, hosted at the legendary NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California.

A catalyzing combination of abundant intellectual capital, almost infinite financial resources, a technology spiral, an entrepreneurial ecosystem, a propitious business environment and digital behemoths has already turned this region, through its digital revolutions, into a worldwide seismic epicenter.
There is an increasingly unfathomable distance between the agenda developed in this small but mighty, intellectual and entrepreneurial community —which, by the way, also integrates a few other digital centers around the world — and the reality experienced by billions of people in their daily lives, oblivious to movements driven by a few individuals.
The operating model used by large global companies, which is focused on process stability, protection of acquired positions and a quest for centralization in the value chain, is ever more losing effectiveness. The speed and chaos required by collaborative experimentation cannot happen in such a business environment. As a result, innovation is developed beyond the boundaries known to the big companies.
