Hi, I'm John Rizvi, the patent professor. Some of the greatest innovations of all time were developed during times of crisis. For example, Sir Isaac Newton developed the law of gravity while at home isolated during the bubonic plague. The basketball was developed during the recession of 1894, by Dr. James Nesbitt, and the iPod was developed within days of the September 11 attacks in the famous book The Art of War. Sun Tzu says that in the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity. Now opportunity does not just mean personal financial gain. It could be that idea that completely changes the world and saves 1000s of lives. It's in times of problems that we need our creativity the most.
