    Why don’t we see more on Asia? Good information here that you can’t find elsewhere.

    Hi TL,

    Indeed, Warren provides a perspective like no other on education, and Asia. I see matching views from Jack Welch,formerly of GE. It’s an area that’s on the radar of all thought leaders that I talk with.

    Thank you for your comments,

    EM (saw your comments on the index page),

    This whole aspect that the world is without boundaries and it’s now about mass co-creation/collaboration is the future reality. Thus when you have such great numbers in Asia, the region can not be ignored. So how can we leverage this for the benefit of all?

    Thank you for your comments,
