Op-Ed Columnist - Just Doing It - NYTimes.com
April 17, 2010 | New York Times | By THOMAS L. FRIEDMAN.
EndoStim was inspired by Cuban and Indian immigrants to America and
funded by St. Louis venture capitalists. Its prototype is being
manufactured in Uruguay, with the help of Israeli engineers and constant
feedback from doctors in India and Chile. Oh, and the C.E.O. is a South
African, who was educated at the Sorbonne, but lives in Missouri and
California, and his head office is basically a BlackBerry....Chris
Anderson of Wired Magazine pointed this out in a smart essay in
February’s issue, entitled “Atoms Are the New Bits.”
