Peter Thiel pointed out a very important fact about 21st centuries biggest innovations that they are not really innovations but design tweaks. Peter Thiel is a silicon valley entrepreneur and venture capitalist. He was co-founder of Paypal and made initial investment in Facebook among other things.
It is intriguing that our population is increasing day by day yet we our focus is on reduction of human capital to do work. Almost everything is automated and we are earnestly making everything automatic. Where are all these people going to go. The important point in Peter Thiel’s discourse is that most of the innovations are changing the looks but doing nothing to boost real important things like manufacture, sustainability, etc.
Strangest thing is our generation is no longer interested in space as our predecessors were. Space is not an escape but sign of aspirations.
