George Takei explores Seattle, the Emerald City, to discover what it is that makes it such a hub of innovation. He visits Seattle’s iconic Space Needle, which has undergone a cool tech makeover, and meets with journalist Monica Guzman to learn about the city’s tech scene and its penchant for dreaming big. George also introduces us to Nick Soman and the team at Reveal, who’ve launched a new app devoted to curing loneliness and helping people around the world meet new friends.
