Long story, but my focus was on how a lot of people in the US, gov't and private industry, know how to get stuff done.
That's equally true of the UK.
That is, there're already a lot of solutions out there, but getting people to work together is required.
Online social media can be used to do that.
There are many other issues, and one bears more discussion later. The deal is that in Silicon Valley culture, failure is accepted as a normal stage in business.
That's not the case elsewhere, at least as much as needed, like the Boston/Rte. 128 corridor, Washington DC, or like I'm being told, the UK.
