I think we should all lay this to rest – as I said to Eric when he announced his plans, I wish him well and there is no such thing as too much competition in the market.
The broader debate about innovation needs to be looked into seriously. My feeling is that the government is not creating the right climate for innovation, from taxes to infrastructure costs and until that happens innovation will be sporadic rather than systematic in the country. What we need is tax breaks for small businesses, cheaper broadband, cheaper hardware, funding for globally competitive salaries and we need the crime rate to reach a level where people can live here and not feel worried all the time.
Thanks for the kind words Max.
