Silicon Valley is what some of the more artfully minded people call a monument to invention. It focuses on computer technologies of course, but any inventor is welcome in the city, and the Edison Patent Office is the busiest patent center in all the worlds. It’s normal to see some young inventor walking through the streets testing a new invention in the wild. It’s also common to see when the invention fails, sometimes in rather hilarious ways. The amazing thing is that the locals actually celebrate those failures. Their founding ethos is that every success is built on a thousand failures, so failing is simply one step on the path to success. I wish more people thought like that.
