RT @TEDchris NYT: "young people look for signals from society..We have a great experiment before us" http://bit.ly/SE4k
good to see people turning backs to finance & other ways of not really serving people or making stuff -- but concerned to hear: "public policy and public issues have been at the center of things" & "Obama effect: his election as an endorsement of government activism"
we need social entrepreneurialism, community entrepreneurialism, and biz entrepreneurialism ... obama was a community organizer before a government guy!
@RevBillyTalen: "Now -- the neighborhoods that have the least amount of luxury condos and chain stores are the healthiest.. Neighborhoods are not sepia-tinged nostalgia. This aint no Norman
Rockwell here. Neighborhoods, with the gatherings of people who know
each other and acknowledge that closeness throughout their day, are in
fact the hippest thing going. Neighborhoods are complex, organic,
sustainable economies. Neighborhoods are not predator financial
organizations. They are better for children and other life.
The Rise of the Neighborhoods! - that would be something to spend seven
months preaching about"
Steve Jobs ('07): "There’s a lot of things that are risky right now, which is always a good sign, and you can see through them, you can see to the other side and go, yes, this could be huge, but there’s a period of risk that, you know, nobody’s ever done it before." Kara: "Do you have an example?"
Steve: "I do, but I can’t say. But I can say, when you feel like that, that’s a great thing. That’s what keeps you coming to work in the morning and it tells you there’s something exciting around the next corner."
