In business and in life it seems that I repeatedly run across three main types of people:
1. Those who create
2. Those who manage
3. Those who invest
Arguably, we all possess some parts of each category of talent, but ultimately one of these areas take over both professionally and personally.
From Nanotech, Genomics, Biotech, Robotics, Cleantech, and even the real discussions around Web 3.0 range from the conceptual to the executionally conceptual to many shades in-between...
Guess what? Those who invest obviously don't give a shit about what it means and how its done.
All the people pondering what it could mean are in category 1 (myself included), and until Zopa and Fundable-like things reinvent the financial capital industry (wishful thinking:), they have to beg the category 3 people to fund their projects.
What about category 2? Well, we bring them in once the category 3 people opened up their wallets. More about that rant in my post here.
So should the next breakthrough innovations be demystified?
Of course, but where's the fun(ding) in that?
