more vacation reading
I admit I brought along to NYC but did not read either book mentioned in previous post. We returned home yesterday, and I have now picked up and started yet another book, The World is Flat by Thomas L. Friedman. I've read a few chapters and feel bogged down by a lot of tech history, but generally I love the idea of individuals reaching across the globe to other people. Of course blogging is one major example of our flat world :) The author noted early in the book that we Americans need to be creative, empathetic problem-solvers. In essence, this validates the point of A Whole New Mind by Daniel Pink!
