Who's going to do it? ...billion-dollar businesses in need of inventors!
He created a multi-billion dollar market!
Huntsville, Alabama: We all know a little about famous geeks that went to the top – Bill Gates, Michael Dell, John Chambers (Cisco), Paul Allen (Microsoft and Charter), Sergey Brin and Larry Page (Google), Jerry Yang (Yahoo)... but Remigius Shatas? From where? Huntsville?
Why not? With the Internet and the mathematics of algorithms, you can create a billion dollar business anywhere.
Not too, too long ago Huntsville was a sleepy town of about just 20,000 people; but in the '60s, it was transformed into the space capital of the world and grew to over 200,000. These are the rocket kids of the '50s and '60s all grown up. And now, the city is being repositioned for a different kind of lift-off. Here is a platform for diversified and even revolutionary growth.
After hitting his first home run, we pick up the story to explore this man's quest to change the face of his cherished hometown... and the world.
Huntsville has become a hotbed for technology startups and there are dozens of people quietly investing in hundreds of businesses, providing everything from start-up capital to mezzanine funding.
They are often called angel investors. Remigius Shatas says, "My goal for Huntsville is that it becomes the most generous city in America." He wants everybody to invest in the good ideas of others!
But this story is all about wires, connections, security and control. It is not a glamorous story. There are no actors, no gurus, no big names. These are the people the general media ignores. With big souls, big brains, big hearts, and humble spirits, they are today's quiet heroes and pioneers. We have to watch carefully and reflect; these key ideas could easily go right over our heads ... here is the story of the America dream.

*Your sliver of genius
In the earliest days of the broadcasts of this show (back in 1994-1995), there was a special segment called "the Sliver of Genius." Then we began to realize virtually every successful business is built on that special focus. Each of us has a sliver of genius. Each of us has special gifts and abilities.
Every crisis should stimulate our imaginations, creativity, and motivations.
Entrepreneurs do not wait for somebody else to do it. They just do it themselves. They take on the big challenges and are not afraid that others will think they are stupid, crazy, or simply a fool. It is so much easier to say, "That's impossible" or "That can't be done."
So what are you waiting for? Do you have a special genius?*
Energy crisis. We are harnessing energy in new ways. Breakthroughs are coming.
Clean water crisis. We are understanding bonding more profoundly. Clean water is coming.
Clean air crisis. Work on the first two actually mitigates the clean air crisis.
Garbage crisis. Evolve recycling and sanitary landfills as Ecology Mountains for work and play.
Open-space crisis. Create wide connectors over superhighways for wildlife and nature trails.
Global warming. It is an integrity issue. It appears to be dead for now.
Fanaticism. Grasp a deeper insight into the foundations of religions and the sciences then become an ambassador to the nations. Fanatics, severely limited intellectually, can be redeemed.
There will be more about each of these crises within the section of the website that talks about going from $0 to over $1 Billion in less than a lifetime. More...
