Dan Bricklin and Mikhail Gorbachev
Thursday, April 14, 2005

Wow! Dan Bricklin gets a hug from Mikhail Gorbachev. He has a very fun to read and thought provoking piece. A quote from Dan's notes on Gorbachev's speech:

At the first Communist Party Congress that he held in 1986 he said for the first time as the head of the party that we are living in an interdependent and interrelated world. The interconnected world is a reality. A new world with new relationships, new kinds of exchanges. This was a right conclusion. Many people thought it was rhetoric, but today we continue to live in this interrelated world. How do we make this world livable? For everyone? This is a world of stress and poverty for over half the population. We cannot allow the world to continue like this. This is a delayed reaction bomb, the roots of terrorism, epidemics, etc. We must do a lot of thinking about this. If information technologies just work for the benefit of developed countries, while much of the rest of the world continues to live in a pre-industrial era, this is not the way to go. We need more justice, more humanism.
