I'm not sure I understand your point. Are you suggesting that government agencies invented all the things you have linked articles on? A photo caption from the first article states: "Volatile NASA funding makes it vital that alternate sources of funds are obtained."

The US government has historically shown a great lack of foresight in many important technologies, scrambling to catch up when it is almost too late.
