I'm in Monaco now, at the Imagina 2005 conference. Since, unexpectedly, the language used is French, I decided to take out my UMTS enabled notebook and surf away looking out over a sunny Mediterranean Sea... Then I read this post by John Barlow who had some experiences while travelling that made him realize the world is a very small place. Sitting here, it's difficult not to agree.
"Anyway, I feel as if the Global Village became real to me that night, and, indeed, it has become the Global Dinner Party. All at once. The small world has become the intimate world."
