Re: Versatility gets rewarded
Civilian space travel: The single biggest waste of money there ever was. I can't see any advantage to society, cities, or even individuals in trips to outer space. But for a small and vocal group of tech-savvy people, it seems to be irresistable.

Versatility gets rewarded
i didn't realize Elon Musk also invented the Hula Hoop. No wonder he has billions to squander on electric cars and civilian space travel. And still you find him overrated.

Re: Congratulations to all our innovators!
Hi Venks: Ah, I'm so glad you brought him up here because he's certainly someone deserving of a shout. Consider him an honorary FC 100-er.

Re: Congratulations to all our innovators!
I would have liked to see Mr. E Sreedharan's name in that illustrous list, @Nicole. He is popularly know as the 'Metro Man' in India. He has been instrumental in handling a number of big budget projects in India and was chief in-charge of the Delhi Metro and several others. Here is link to some of his achievements.

Leon Krier
Leon Krier has had a massive effect on town planning in the UK. It has lead to a townscape led approach to new development which is at once useful and also limiting. I agree with Urban designs ideas about a sense of place but here in the UK I feel it is leading us down a cul de sac (dead end). We have to allow new styles of development if we wish for our cities and towns to be varied in the future. THe cities we have inherited are a mix of old and new. We must not to forget to celebrate the new and contextuality is not always the way to bring about exceptional architecture or town plans. We need a little more daring and I think it is Kriers controversial and influtential ideas that make him relevant to current debate on the built environment
