In discussion with a friend in another forum, the subject of entrepreneurship came up.
The friend likened entrepreneurship to the lottery, and I can certainly understand that point of view.
However, I see entrepreneurship as a team effort which is a process that gathers momentum over time as the participants invest thought at first, and then a bit of effort, and finally resources.
discuss.the-knowledge.org forum is a gathering place for talent, and potentially for capability.
Begin Quotation from discussion elsewhere:
My hope is that Dr. Dartnell is attracting some of the brightest, most capable persons alive on Earth today, so that (at some point) a critical mass will occur, and all the discussion can convert overnight into a project with a reasonable chance of fruition.
In his interview on The Space Show, Dr. Dartnell pushed back against the popular fictional image of a single multi-talented individual surviving a disaster against all odds. He asserted and supported the view that it takes a group of people working together to achieve civilization on the large scale, or something more modest in the near term.
