UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL WITH DADO BANATAO: Highlights of a Life-Affirming Conversation with the Filipino Silicon Valley Innovator PDF Print E-mail
Views:804

Introduction
On 15 May 2014, the SMART SWEEP Innovation and Excellence Awards Champion team from the Bataan Peninsula State University composed of President Dr. Delfin O. Magpantay, Engr. Faye L. Baret, student innovators, had the opportunity to meet and talk with Engr. Diosdado “Dado” P. Banatao, Filipino innovator at Silicon Valley, the home of IT giants such as Google, Twitter, Facebook among others.  The BPSU Team was with City of Balanga Mayor Joet Garcia and other local city officials.
The following reflects the highlights of the conversation and interaction of the Bataan group with Dado Banatao.

Silicon Valley innovations have affected the entire world considering it was not planned; the only thing planned about Silicon Valley is “Excellence”.

Silicon Valley is “a state of mind”.  There is a culture of suicidal risk-taking—you know you are going to fail, but you still do it, and money comes rolling in.  Failure is like a badge of honor—when you fail at something, it means you learned something, and for that, companies want to work with you.

In principle, Silicon Valley began in the 1800s when Stanford and Berkeley started.  The schools focused on education first, with engineering as a major approach.  Rich families then wanted to fund an engineering school and first went to Harvard but they were turned down, so they went to Stanford.  These families made sure to fund the engineering school with huge property.  They wanted to make sure that there is an engineering school that was properly funded and operated; they brought in the best minds to teach.  As such, Silicon Valley is Stanford property.

Banatao pities students today because they have to learn more compared to what he had to learn in school when he was in college.

It is called Silicon Valley because it is where the semiconductors industry exploded.

There is industry-school interaction.

The community colleges in the area are the feeder system for the full-blown universities—if the students get a “B” or higher, they can automatically get into the UC system.
