@OneNeck, what do you think organizations have to do to renew the excitement and innovation? Is it a hopeless task?

I think the loss of enthusiasm has more to do with the influx of a very large supply of younger tech savvy people. Wages are dropping, and the type of people working in these projects isn't limited to the adventurous and innovative types who were at the front of the wave in the late 90's and early 2000's. Now realism has set in, and it's turning into the Office Space type of grind, where skills are so common place that they are not valued or paid for, and new ideas are not welcomed by the established elite. The market is catching up with us.
