    The World is Flat

    Thomas Friedman's new book entitled the World is Flat talks about the flattening of the geo-economic playing field caused by the internet and globalization. He gives a speech to MIT and discusses his thesis in his book and various other aspects of the future of the "wired world"

    Excellent public speaker and insightful message. Well worth the watch.

    I find this thread shallow and pedantic.

    I think this thread is round and has it's own gravitational pull.
