"I believe [this year's] record amount of innovation stems from many sources. Some announcements have been years in the planning. But many come from entrepreneurial companies, big and small, realizing that the harsh recession creates winners and losers. And it also creates not only the opportunity - but the necessity to break out and do something different."
