What advice can we offer to aspiring entrepreneurs?
Thanks for doing this! I think there needs to be much much more entrepreneurship education out there... If we cannot count on corporate america to create enough jobs for all of us, we need to create them ourselves as entrepreneurs. -I believe support structure is a huge key to success, building a team that is performance driven and trustworthy.

Justin Hall-Tipping: Freeing energy from the grid
Sidney, I agree... I can remember when my mother started investing in Biotech stocks years back because of these kinds of promises and many of the companies went belly up. Is there any indicator to tell if these types of miracle inventions are really on the cusp? From what I can tell, there is still quite a gap between this presentation and a useful product, manufacturing, and distribution. I hope I am wrong here. But either way, Justin Hall-Tipping is really advancing research and the practicality of the field and that's a good thing, even if the real practical inventions come 12-15 years down the road.

Justin Hall-Tipping: Freeing energy from the grid
Alex, My viewpoint concerning your money argument is the challenge of motivation. Money is our current system to motivate humans to accomplish greater achievements or sacrifice their time/energy/effort for something greater than themselves (even if that is merely working at McDonalds). Money has an ability to unify thousands which can be very flawed and dangerous, but it will be our system until we can create a better one. Efficiency is not a bad thing inherently. You want your car mechanic to be efficient with his time don't you? You want you subway trains to be efficient right? But my question is, what system is better than money? I believe the challenge is not to make everyone "socially equal" but to create a world that allows for abundance for each person/family. How? I don't know yet. But abundant cheep energy is a good start and if Justin Hall-Tipping is motivated by money to create something so amazing as this, I have no problem at all! He is merely working within the existing framework to create something awesome. Let's hope that the breakthroughs and patents lead to real practical inventions, efficient manufacturing, and distribution into the marketplace!

Yang Lan: The generation that's remaking China
It's an undeniable fact that China is going through many of the same growing pains that the U.S. has and is dealing with i.e. poverty, human rights, government effectiveness etc... I found it striking that a comment mentioned the youth of China facing a sort of greed-depression. In other words, the more you begin to have, the more you want, which leaves you continually unsatisfied. As an American, I am dealing with this everyday. Since we are all linked economically (and more and more socially), we are basically trying to solve the same problem both as a country and as citizens... How do we find our place and thrive peacefully in a new globalized world?

Wadah Khanfar: A historic moment in the Arab world
Remeber, the United States revolution took 15+ years for the country to remain sustainable and many many more to become viable in the world. These things take time, much time. To be resolute for many years is the most important atribute in Ukraine and in Egypt.
