Why promote Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship?
Thomas Jefferson said "[E]very generation needs a new revolution."homas Jefferson said "[E]very generation needs a new revolution."
The revolution for the generations in the first half of the 20th century was socialism/communism. For those of the second half of the same century, it was the return to capitalism. For the current generation, it seems to be entrepreneurialism.
It has become clear in recent times that
- Technology (T) is the principal key to economic success,
- There is no technology growth without innovation (I), and
- Free-spirited entrepreneurship (E) is more effective than either central planning or state capitalism in consummating innovation.
Yet, a depressingly large number of individuals and institutions, including universities (which are supposed to be ahead of the rest of the society) are still locked up in the 'isms' and managerial mindsets of the last century.
This website seeks to contribute towards changing such societal and institutional attitudes by building a community devoted to the growth of TIE-knowledge and entrepreneurialism through activities such as blogging, e-books, and e-publications (materials for teaching support, local case-studies, etc.).
Whether you are a university student, professor, practicing professional, public official, entrepreneur, or just a citizen, you are encouraged to participate.
