✓someone asked :Why implant chip instate of biometric information ?
Sebastian: If someone "steals" my retina image or my finger print, then I have no chance to "change my password". I can't change my fingerprint. I can change a chip.
✓someone asked: Can technology solve our environmental ills or will increased dependence on tech drive us further from an appreciation of the natural world?

✓A question from South Asia: Do you see a change in innovation, from the west to Asia & Africa in the foreseeable future ?
Sebastian: I often receive visitors in Silicon Valley who ask "how can I bring Silicon Valley back to my home country?". I would love to. But much of it has to do with cultural values and norms. In most part of the world, starting a company that goes bust is dubbed a "failure." In Silicon Valley, we call this "gaining experience." We are willing to take the risks that are inherent for innovation.
