When Red said "Competition is not valued here", the key word is "here" - "here" being at ITP. What's special about the program Red has nurtured over the years is that it is a place where motivation to excel exists very strongly without a sense of competition, only one of camaraderie. The students come from such a diversity of backgrounds that they quickly discover there is so much they can learn from each other that there's simply no time for competition - in fact, competition would be a needless spinning of the wheels at a place like ITP. I have no doubt that Red values competitions in other real-world applications, but ITP is a largely judgment-free, sandbox type of atmosphere, which is why it produces such innovation over and over again.
