Rene Seifert at On the Edge offers a great summary of a very recent Thomas Friedman "flat world' presentation. If you aren't familiar with Friedman's theory about Globalization 3.0, read the summary at On the Edge. It's a concise and accurate description of how and why technology and creativity have trumped the old ways of doing business.
I found the post in a Technorati tag stream. Thanks for tagging it, Rene.
