Focus on change instead of invention
Europe has losts its way. Our former strenghts where based on market value creation in constant competition.
This has been replaced by "managed citiziens and markets" which simply do not work.
My statement is not ideological but recognising the basic fact that especially bureuarats and commercial infrastructures foicus on controlling and preventing innovation rather than value creation.
Stanards are not designed to facilite change and innovation but to establish lock-in and kartel structures e.g. payments, mobile phones and eSignature.
Innovation is about EMPOWERED CITIZENS MAKING FREE CHOICE without the lock-in from devices such as Apple, channels such as TelCos/banks, social networks such as Facebook, spynets such as Google or inefectiveness-creation such as Command & Control orgganised public sector services.
It does not help to push inventions or liquidity into a system that are preventing from changing by regulation or technology designed to dis-empower the citizens for the sake of narrow interests.
eSignature is an example of an Innovation-barrier created and maintained by government. ANY use of eSignature is dis-empowering as control ALWAYS transfer to someone else when you identify.
