    > next Steve Jobs will come from a country where innovation & creativity education is established and structured into the schools and universities and enterprises

    The first Steve Jobs did not spend much time in university or companies. Not sure the next ones will need that either.

    > If our students have never read of Genrich Altshuller, Luc de Brabender, Michael Michalko, Edward de Bono it is going to be very difficult to get such innovation and creativity skills by profound meditation and curiosity alone.

    Did Steve Jobs read any of those? Maybe since he was a Reed college guy, and focused on humanities, but it is just as likely he did not.

    > Meditation exists in western religion too since 450 years ago when Mr. Ignacio de Loyola recommended it together with a daily evaluation, observation of reality and taking away all your prejudices and emitional states of mind to think new solutions to your problem.

    There are surely even older cases than that. The question is rather: why it did not spread.

    > We tend to overstate as great all Hindi meditation techniques and dismiss as counter-dogma all western previous wisdom on these matters, I think there is a lot of wisdom all over the cultures and religions and the country that will succeed in teh future is the one that will fight with passion to increase the global intellgence of their people without prejudices against anything.

    True. Wisdom can come from many places, and is not confined to India, 'The West' or religion.

  • Aavmvazquez Alfredo Vazquez del Mercado, Ingeniero Congratulations for this very intersting presentation!
    In my opinion the next Steve Jobs will come from a country where innovation & creativity education is established and structured into the schools and universities and enterprises. Just like productivity & quality systems have made their way into all the cultures & companies all over the world. If our students have never read of Genrich Altshuller, Luc de Brabender, Michael Michalko, Edward de Bono it is going to be very difficult to get such innovation and creativity skills by profound meditation and curiosity alone. Meditation exists in western religion too since 450 years ago when Mr. Ignacio de Loyola recommended it together with a daily evaluation, observation of reality and taking away all your prejudices and emitional states of mind to think new solutions to your problem. We tend to overstate as great all Hindi meditation techniques and dismiss as counter-dogma all western previous wisdom on these matters, I think there is a lot of wisdom all over the cultures and religions and the country that will succeed in teh future is the one that will fight with passion to increase the global intellgence of their people without prejudices against anything.
    With my best regards!

  • dinoslender DS - Asionalization at DS - Asionalization Great! I think the best way is to do something with Asian Structure and Latin American Content even with the large distance between the countries. Like Honda/Senna or Japanese Industry/Brazilian Iron Ore.

    Apple will be more big when their products reach the middle class in Latin America.

    Here in Japan, the majority of Brazilians use the structure from Softbank and Yahoo BB to exchange contents with their parents and friends in Brazil.
