This blog is about the search for globalization's silver lining and defining how we navigate this future by embracing the knowledge economy, utilizing advanced technology and making education and communication accessible. While any science requires healthy skepticism, I am unrelenting in my belief that among the convergence of disciplines such as technology, education, innovation and communication, we can identify a new approach. This is an open forum to discuss this expansive and admittedly overly ambitious quest. It's difficult to imagine anything "off topic" in this venue as politics, social welfare, technology, economics, relative value systems, what it means to be scalable, sustainability and how we navigate a meaningful path for our future are all fair game. I'm looking forward to sharing the journey with you.
