There is no room in the corporate world for obstinate mavericks. Which is why I prefer to contract. So there is a place. Just not in the normal TOE.
In any case innovation is not a problem in America. It is why we have so much venture capital. Lots of innovators out there getting funded. In fact there is more money than ideas these days. Especially in alternative energy.
