UCWrXlzhIENTJrAuKVuPgdEA

With the most tech startups and venture capital per capita in the world, Israel has long been hailed as The Startup Nation. WIRED’s feature-length documentary looks beyond Tel Aviv’s vibrant, liberal tech epicenter to the wider Holy Land region – the Palestinian territories, where a parallel Startup Nation story is emerging in East Jerusalem, Nazareth, Ramallah and other parts of the West Bank, as well as in the Israeli cybersecurity hub of Be’er Sheva. And we will learn how the fertile innovation ecosystem of Silicon Wadi has evolved as a result of its unique political, geographical and cultural situation and explore the future challenges – and solutions – these nations are facing.


FUTURE CITIES | SERIES 2 - HOLY LAND:
The second season of WIRED’s Future Cities series takes us inside one of the world’s biggest startup nations. With the most tech startups and venture capital per capita in the world, Israel has long been hailed as The Startup Nation. WIRED’s four-part series will look beyond Tel Aviv’s vibrant, liberal tech epicentre to the wider Holy Land region – the Palestinian territories, where a parallel Startup Nation story is emerging in East Jerusalem, Ramallah and the West Bank, as well as in the Israeli cybersecurity hub of Beersheba. And we will learn how the fertile innovation ecosystem of Silicon Wadi has evolved as a result of its unique political, geographical and cultural situation and explore the future challenges – and solutions – these nations are facing.

FUTURE CITIES | SERIES 1 - SHENZHEN:
We examine the unique manufacturing ecosystem that has emerged, gaining access to the world’s leading hardware-prototyping culture whilst challenging misconceptions from the west. The film looks at how the evolution of “Shanzhai” – or copycat manufacturing – has transformed traditional models of business, distribution and innovation, and asks what the rest of the world can learn from this so-called “Silicon Valley of hardware".

I never been this hopeful for the Jews and Arabs, I pray that technology and start ups broker more believable peace for both sides.

38:43 "we believe innovation is in the details".

Then I remember from the Shenzhen video that cigar smoking guy said: "there is one thing that China is missing, and that is details".

With this logic, China =/ innovation

I think that Israel not having any oil is a blessing in disguise since it meant that the country had to diversify its economy instead of relying on oil like Saudi Arabia. The UAE is also forward thinking in that it is also changing the driving force of its economy from oil to tourism.

I'm non-Palestinian Muslim but I really am hoping that both sides will find peace eventually and this region will be the next technology valley or something. Hard times will create great people, be strong and keep moving forward!

Great documental Wired.
Love this series of videos based in business places like Shenzen or Israel in general. Keep it going, it's awesome. We may be able to find a place to get our libertarian paradise some day.

The Shenzhen documentary was more attractive. I believe most of the time innovations
occurs in small group of people/companies, Shenzhen is a place more likely to allow these
things happen. Somehow you can feel the city is in chaos, it evolves all the time. Behind that,
the sense of motivation, energy, diversity, uncertainty are absolutely amazing.

Masnvisor looks to be something that could be used in a positive or negative way. Freedoms being removed.
