Yossi Vardi played this video as part of a session he contributed to at Sci Foo Camp today. If you’re able to look past the cheesy music, you’ll see the story of innovation in America unfolding. Scientific breakthrough after scientific breakthrough that laid the foundation for our homespun innovation economy we all participate in today.
There are two ways to interpret this video. Either we stand on the shoulders of these giants and continue our tradition of innovation OR we hand the baton to a different generation rising on other soil more fertile for innovation than our own.
With no further comment on the matter Yossi simply pointed out that Bell Labs is now owned by a French company.
