The Developing World as the Epicenter of Innovation
Alex Steffen, 20 Sep 04

Riffing off the piece on tech in the developing world we blogged yesterday, ally Ethan Zuckerman makes a "radical prediction":

Over the next ten years, the most interesting developments in IT will come from developing nations, not from Silicon Valley. In the same way that university-student net geeks became critical players in the dot.com boom (because they understood the Internet on a deep level and saw possibilities that others missed), creative engineers from the developing world will become critical players in the next IT boom cycle. It will be interesting to see whether smart venture capitalists "get" that they need to start hanging out in Mumbai or Sao Paolo, or whether they'll cling to an antiquated model where the US innovates and the rest of the world follows.
