Interact to Innovate
As someone who’s been steeped in the culture of innovation most of my career and in Silicon Valley for the last 15 years of my career, I sometimes find that those two ethos’s (ethii?) sometimes compete with each other. After all, the Silicon Valley ethos is one of driven entrepreneurs sacrificing all sorts of things (social life, time, money) in order to build the next big amazing new thing and change the world. This place is rife with stories of people pulling months and months of all-nighters and sleeping under their desks in order to just get world changing things out the door. It surrounds you here. You interact with your computer.
