I know this guy!
Redundant. Yes, I apologize. But back I go to "Davos" and the World Economic Forum. I love the webcasts they have and the latest one I watched threw me a suprise: I met this Thomas C. Foley maybe a month ago in Chicago. Apparently, between Iraq and Switzerland, he gets around. Funny guy though.

"Systematic Change" - Clinton at the World Economic Forum
Clinton was the opening speaker in Davos at the World Economic Forum. Like him or not its a brilliant speech, I implore you to watch it. Summation: Ideas are not enough. Agreement on ideas are not enough. Even to act is not enough. The action requires a systemic approach putting in place a broad infrastructure to truly affect change. Ex: To reduce the price of AIDS drugs in Africa is not enough. Without an infrastructure to get the drugs, a network of clinics to dispense to all the people who needs them, what do you have at the end of the day.
If you want to affect change yourself try Geekcorps or Witness.org
The Seminal Moment
Yes, Yes, I know its about time. But here we do go. This will improve; I have a few domains in the running to get this off the free kick. But this will do for the time being. Off we go!
