Original Ideas In Silicon Valley Are Like Bitcoins. Posted by Tom Foremski - January 31, 2014 I’ve started noticing some correlations between Bitcoins and original ideas in Silicon Valley, which are the necessary sparks of innovation.
Few new Bitcoins are being produced because miners have minted all the easy ones. Original ideas are increasingly rare in Silicon Valley because the easy innovations, such as selling music online, or shoes, have been taken. Original ideas come from original experiences, just as each Bitcoin is mined, by being the first to find a unique answer.
