Reports from Israel and London

I'm sorry I haven't reported in more from my overseas trip.  I've had some technical problems, and just been very busy.  I will be posting more detailed thoughts on my return flight home on Sunday, but for now I will say that it has been a terrific trip, I've learned a great deal, met many remarkable people, and have an even better understanding of the incredible power of globalization (and its relative the global telcom and internet revolution), which is without doubt, the single most significant force effecting the people of the world today.
