Davos

The World Economic Forum annual meeting, AKA "Davos", is now underway in Davos, Switzerland. You can get a lot of information about the events at the WEF web page. There is a Davos blog "conversation" as well.

Some day I would actually like to attend the forum, but I do not have any realistic expectation of ever being able to do so. The good news is that there is enough media coverage that you can get 20% of the benefit of being there without the hassle of actually having to be there.

One of the new features is that we can actually "participate" by submitting YouTub videos that address "The Davos Question":
What one thing do you think that countries, companies or individuals must do
to make the world a better place in 2008?

Some of our videos will be screened at select plenary sessions (January 23-27). World leaders will continue to watch our videos and make responses of their own at the YouTube corner in the Congress Centre.

That's actually rather cool. Alas, I still haven't gotten into this whole video thing.

I would offer the following suggestion for my "one thing":

  1. Tone down all the fear-mongering rhetoric, whether it is about terrorism, the environment, the economy, or "the other party" regardless of what your political or social persuasion might be.
