The greatest German kickstarter project is not on kickstarter
Horst Seehofer, Prime Minister of Bavaria claims Nr.1 pole position in the digital revolution and my socialist friends are joking that this is because Seehofer was given an e-mail account

Make no mistake – Germany in particular Bavaria is well equipped to succeed as late entry to the digital economies
True, much like the Irish are not known for their command of the English language, Bavarian politicians are having a hard time in Berlin and don’t speak proper German, yet Berlin is funded by Bavarian tax money. The city of Munich is surrounded by a ring of top notch high tech firms no other German city can show for. Network infrastructure is not based on olc fashioned copper wiring as is the case in the states but on fibre optics. Munich evolved from farmland with an inherent mindset of independent farmers used to rely on their craft naturally opposed to government and state. Think of Bavaria as of the dixie state.
