In the spirit of transparency and full disclosure, I'd like to give you a preview of my speech to the World Economic Forum this Friday.
By way of introduction, it's becoming more readily apparent that in the absence of greater leadership and global stewardship; complexity, competing interests and scarce resources remain the greatest obstacles to progress on the global front. It is in this challenging context that the World Economic Forum this year highlights "The Power of Collaborative Innovation" as the principal theme for the Annual Meeting in Davos.
I — along with my friends and colleagues Tony Blair, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (1997-2007) and Member of the Foundation Board of the World Economic Forum; James Dimon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, JPMorgan Chase & Co., USA; K.V. Kamath, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, ICICI Bank, India; Henry Kissinger, Chairman, Kissinger Associates, USA; Indra K. Nooyi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, PepsiCo, USA; David J. O'Reilly, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Chevron Corporation, USA; and Wang Jianzhou, Chief Executive, China Mobile Communications Corporation, People's Republic of China — believe strongly that we are at a global inflection point. "Collaborative Innovation" is the promise that gets to the core of global cooperation and economic stability.
I will be opening the session titled "Using Technology to Create Competitive Advantage." My panel will focus on how some countries are becoming intensively competitive by using information and communications technologies, while others are being left behind.
What follows is a draft of my remarks. I'm still putting on the final touches. Of course, as always, I look forward to your comments and feedback.

How could you not understand that a revolution that goes by the name of the Me2Revolution is nothing other than the cutting edge of technology and web marketing. It is the NEW standard of word of mouth, being that one must say Me2Revolution 30 times in a row, twice as fast as the previous in order to be involved in the fraternal style rituals.
