10 10 President Obama Tours a Foreign Companys Renewable Energy Manufacturing Facility in Iowa Source: Official White House Photo by Lawrence Jackson.. [J]ust a few short years ago, this facility was dark, it was quiet, nothing was going on. And today, its alive and humming with more than 600 employees...So in the midst of the economic turmoil, the Recovery Act helped make it possible for America to install nearly 10 gigawatts of new wind-generating capacity last year alone -– and that's enough to power more than 2.4 million American homes. So when people ask you what was the Recovery Act about, what was the stimulus about, it was about this -- this plant. -President Barack Obama Siemens Wind Turbine Blade Manufacturing Plant Fort Madison, Iowa., April 27, 2010

22 Waves of Innovation & The Next Big Thing In its lifetime, the Valley has experienced several waves of technology innovation: defense, integrated circuit, personal computer, Internet.. Each wave was interrupted by competitive or external shocks (defense cutbacks, national economic cycles) that caused short-term employment contractions. But each wave built innovation networks of talent, suppliers and financial service providers that helped make the next technology wave possible.
