The Era of Simultaneous Invention


I believe there is a profound impact that not only SpaceX, Tesla and Solar City are having and will continue to have on society, but there are many others, Google's Larry Page, Amazon's Jeff Bezos, Virgin's Richard Branson and others. It's as if they're in direct competition with one another, those with billions to throw at innovation, are not only challenging each other, but are inspiring many, many other start-ups, creating a culture of innovation.

One investor I'd like to mention, is a Tesla & SpaceX early investor Steve Jurvetson, I encourage you all to watch/listen to this 53 minute presentation in it's entirety, he introduces this historically relevant event of simultaneous invention, like an explosion of innovation, he talks about how Silicon Valley, now, is effecting every facet of industry, creating unconstrained exponential disruption, from biology to agriculture, manufacturing, space, transportation, communication, entertainment...

No industry is safe from radical disruption from technology, which to me, means the ugly power institutions that exist today, will likely become irrelevant. Here's Steve talking about what effect Elon has had in Silicon Valley, he has proven, that there is no industry that is sacred, that nothing is outside of the reach of technological innovation @28:38:
