2020 Ecopreneurs by 2020, curiosity + tribal leadership

Bridging some thoughts first
I got up early to watch the landing of the NASA vehicle “curiositylive. Actually I have my reservations to spend so much money in space missions while the urgent challenges on our precious planet Earth wait for our collective action. But watching the cheering of the team made clear that this thing is connected to the issue of social capital, creating collaborative culture – and how the impossible is made possible when there is a unifying vision! And let me associate with the name of that vehicle another thought: Curiosity is a source and virtue of the folks bridging networks and domains, bravely jumping between huge gaps – what do you think?
