It is so hard to become proactive when you are inundated with reactive…

The State

Here is a quote taken from this web site: http://www.vivarto.com/o2/eng/index2.html. Think that both Pericles and Socrates are right in a fashion (more after the quote). Perhaps the most difficult problem of mankind down through the ages has been how to coordinate our common affairs in an efficient, competent, creative and democratic way.

Clinton

Ran across an interesting interview with Bill Clinton in December 2000, Wired magazine. Here is a quote from him discussing technology’s influence on society.

These teams are cross town rivals. LHS… Continue reading Crosstown Rivals
