Thanks Patrick for the response. As an architect I have seen how innovation is deeply rooted in the positive evolution of our society, I have also seen how the youngest generation today has had to struggled to be heard and included within the work force. There is also another issue that I think should be considered in this project which is, for thousands of years knowledge was passed down from elders to the youth and so on and so forth. Now we have a generation that is about to exit the work force in large numbers and then this younger generation that is entering it with no knowledge sharing between the two, or at least very little. Innovation is great but could be enhanced with the passing of knowledge down more consistently. The irony of this project is that you are promoting innovation on a archaic rail way system that should have evolved into a high speed rail long before most countries today. We need to address this areas where we allow innovation to be stifled by industrial controls and capitalistic misguidance. I would love to be apart of the journey or even more deeply connected to this amazing project. Thanks again for all your effort.

It's this age discrimination? I'm sure there are generation x, y, and z'ers out there who have great ideas as well. Don't make it about the youth, make it about everyone everywhere with an idea.
