Innovators

When I was looking through twitter I came across this video about innovation. It details the accomplishments of Joi Ito ( the presenter) and numerous other innovators. The video spoke primarily about everyone being able to innovate. When most people think innovation they think about the internet. This isn’t the case any longer though, innovation isn’t limited to  technological wunderkinds in Palo Alta. The internet enables people to create remarkably useful and extremely helpful websites and other such things. However, one can create something in everyday lives, they shouldn’t think it out of reach because someone’s told us it’s impossible. They could cure cancer, design a machine to control the weather or invent a new sport. The days where people were limited are mostly over. The only limit to our creativity is our fears and worries. I believe this video does an amazing job in showing people they can take initiative, that it isn’t something to fear but embrace, to strive for. If you have any comments don’t hesitate.
