Silicon Valley predictions
Just to highlight the key messages, Googleâ€™s Eric Schmidt wants to foster willingness to look for unconventional ways to solve problems. On the other hand, Umang Gupta of Keynote Systems Inc. believes the mobile Internet is the next big thing and Intelâ€™s Paul Otellini hopes for more creativity, capital, and focus but fears complacency.
Ciscoâ€™s John Chambers shares the fear of Otellini but wants to have more courage to evolve and collaborate even with direct competitors. TJ Rodgers of Cypress Semiconductor has this greatest hope of resolving the current energy problem while O’Reilly Media Tim O’Reilly dreams of affordable housing for service workers.
Although Iâ€™m not a CEO, I hope that a new Valley will emerge to foster competition, take creativity to a higher level, and trigger creative disruption.
