Day 27 of My Favorite Things: Globalization

Today I did a global experiment. I have friends in all parts of the world. I asked them – via my Facebook page – to take a picture with their phone at 2pm Eastern Standard Time and email it to me. What you see below is the result.

Globalization Is Pretty Cool, Right?

I think it is so cool that I posted this request from my bed in New York at 9am this morning and was able to reach people in all corners of the world immediately. Can you believe there was a time when you could only write letters? Or make expensive long distance phone calls? It amazed me that with the push of a button I got to all of you. Pretty cool, right? Our kids will grow up in a world knowing nothing but this. Amazing. Thank you for your help today.

Thank you, everyone, for helping me with this “experiment”. All who have responded have become one of my favorite things!

As The World Gets Bigger It Also Gets Smaller

With technology it is incredible how we can feel right next to someone across the world. It will only get bigger, faster, and better. Globalization is coming fast and not going anywhere.
