Have met so many people who wasted decades of their lives doing something meaningless. The reason is that they had the vision, but didn't have the money to sustain that vision. Large companies and foundations are notoriously poor at spotting that talent and nurturing brilliance. Negroponte is right that the chances are better now. But the funding to make it happen is being guarded by those who are frightened of hiring someone brighter than themselves.
