“It evokes science fiction to envision voluntary alliances networked across vast distances which challenge traditional nation-states, but it is already happening. Globalization, terrorism and events of the past five days, the past five weeks and the past five decades suggest that the nation-state may be undergoing the greatest shift since its emergence in Europe. Many of these pressures on the nation-state arise from what we could call virtual nations. The established nation-states must respond to these emergent entities or face the consequences.”

“THE OLD WAYS ARE DEAD. AND YOU NEED PEOPLE AROUND YOU WHO CONCUR”

Speaking of powerpoint presentations…

I came by this manifesto “ How to be Creative” by Hugh MacLeod via Dave at Thoughts Illustrated. Some wise advice, delivered in a style reminiscient of a calmer Scott Adams.

ADDENDUM:

As promised, a powerpoint extravaganza by Dan of tdaxp.
