A Good Speech….

I am lucky enough to know one of the best technology futurists – Mark Anderson of SNS.  He runs the best conference I’ve ever attended:  FiRE, or the Future in Review (yes – it’s even better than science fiction cons).  But that’s a different topic.  He also publishes a newsletter, and a piece of that content was what he hoped would be the speech President Obama would deliver on the jobs issue.  That speech was so good that Mark was asked to make it more widely available. He complied; it’s posted on his blog, A Bright Fire.  It’s worth reading.

    This is stuff that we take for granted in our own culrute and have to learn if we go elsewhere.Also makes me think more about foreign businesses working in the UK and how they would also need to acclimatise. Really interesting thanks for sharing this.
