Y4IT Passion & Innovation Why Philippines is the Next Silicon Valley w Notes


Published on

Notes Included: A Thought becomes an idea becomes a dream, a movement and meme.
We need to focus on what can be, what will be not WHAT IS.

A thought becomes an idea or dream, becomes a meme (collective idea, or collective mind virus) it spreads following small world math 6 degrees through a population. Poverty is a Mind Virus a meme, a consciousness and a way of life.
Any marketer worth his salt knows that 80% or so of the population react to a pain versus 20% being proactive. This means 80% of people want to loose weight versus 20% getting in shape. This means 80% of people want to Get out of debt now, versus 20% of people wanting to invest for the future.

Well I am here to say, we can stop the pain. We can get out of debt now, and we can solve the problems facing us today. Innovation, that spark is the only way. Not the government, not an industry, that spark starts with us, right here and right now.
