A very very interesting post Satya. I have lots to say in this context. I can point out so many such small small innovations that people do. Like for parking the car in a garage, it is sometimes difficult to judge how much more one can move forward. Somebody here came up with this ball attached to a string that can be hung on the roof of your garage at the right place so that you don't pull too much to the front. I think people here are at good doing things with their hands and they take that extra initiative to innovate, however small it is. I think the way they learn is one of the reasons for this.


Yes, the U.S. has had, and continues to have, a strong culture of DIY and small practical innovations which manifests itself in the number of useful (and useless) patents in the U.S.


I like what you call it - DIY culture :-)
