I sprung from a 16 year old on welfare who made a big personal sacrifice dropping out of high school to have me. I'm the first to go to college from both sides of my family. I've been blessed with a wife, son, and wonderful opportunities in Silicon Valley.
My wife says I love technology so much, I should have been an engineer - I agree.
TECH: no wires - data or electrical. SOCIAL: the appreciation of shared values even if our beliefs are different. FREEDOM TO INNOVATE: Eliminating barriers to the adoption of innovations - developing a 'United Nations' for innovators (IP owners) to collaborate.
Our moral responsibility to use our talents, experiences, and passions to contribute more to the world than we take from it.
multiparty negotiations (wish I could have said the guitar or piano)
My friend Michael Levit has been a TED member for a while. Each year he would come back from Monterey and tell me how interesting it was. I was fortunate to attend the last TED in Monterey as well as Long Beach.
