They should call it "World Bashing The United States" forum and stop dancing around the fact that this is all it is.
"They should call it "World Bashing The United States" forum "
Agreed. The latter half of the keywords I posted were NOT complimentary!
I saw a snip of this conference this morning on NBC-Clinton and some freak called 'Bono'. It was all about bashing Bush and America. I wish they'd all come out of the closet like the creeps at the inaugaration and just burn flags. That really says it all.
Exactly, which is why that power needs to be limited altogether.

So much for the claim from Davos that they don't release video from their events. Damn fine work, JJ.
I am still trying to figure out why people go to Davos?! There could be many reasons why someone would pay $20-30K for taking a part in this kind of event and even more things you could do with this kind of money. Sharon Stone and Richard Gear were there to talk about their foundations and to try to save the world. I guess if your professional career is not doing so well, you may as well try to save the world. Sharon is not superman, but she was able to raise over a million dollars in less than 5 min during a session, so if you think about it, star power could be used for useful things after all. Why am I taking so much time to talk about the stars, maybe because we are able to see their contributions easier, maybe because we are sick of watching politicians talk and talk. When Bono and Clinton were about to leave one of the session, there were many reporters waiting for them! Well, most of them were waiting for Bono. Clinton did get some attention, mainly from people like me, but Bono was clearly the start, once again.
Al Gore was very cool and down the earth, blending with the crowd, trying to stay away from debates with Tony. Ted Turner was on steroid, passing around people while I was almost jogging next to him trying to have a conversation with him about the future of blogging, videoblogging and how this will transform TV media as we know it. After a few minutes and a few tracks around the standing and amused crowed and said nice jogging and wend back in my green office.
Davosland -- Part II
Well, it has been a few days since I wrote part one of my Davos adventures. Now, where were we? Yes, I was boring you with my travel adventures to Davos! So, in order to better understand the WEF atmosphere, lets for a moment pretend that there is this utopia place where Palestinian authority, Shimon Peres, Ted Turner and myself walk calmly in the same room (their security is still jumping every time a person drops their napkin and have their hands on a trigger under their jackets).
Than, Angelina Guile climes slowly and gracefully a large stairway in a skinny brown suet and you are not sure if this is the real person or Lora Craft saving the world again. I was on the phone at that same moment, and every time I told my good friend Jay the names of the people passing me by, I hear on the other side some disbelief excitement and some jealousy in his voice. Later, I was ordering a coffee and who do you think was drinking coffee next to me?! Lara Craft, I mean Angelina; I mean the real thing in flesh in blood. Wow, this was all I could think of, wow. Angelina. Than I had to pinch myself and come back to the real world, and yes I was having a coffee with Lora Craft (you know what I mean.) Tony and a few other guys who until than had only hear that Angelina was there kept asking me about her, was she short, is she as pretty in real life??? Yes, yes, yes, but she is not short(well, most people are shorter than me anyway, so this is a relative question), and yes she is gorgeous and I think a person that is very down the earth as she took pictures with every one who asked her for one. I was still pinching myself and daydreaming, so I missed my chance.
I know it sounds like I'm digressing; but I've been trying to get the picture on who all WAS AT THIS "conference".
Oh. Part I: http://www.alwayson-network.com/comments.php?id=P8216_0_5_0_C
You know, there was a very good reason for all this security, background checks and waiting lines. Here at Davos, the crowd consists of some of the most famous world politicians, VCs, CEOs, royalties and Hollywood stars you can think of. Here is the short list of people I met and had a chance to talk to ( I have the pictures and video to prove it too) the last few days; Clinton, Gore, Sorros, Dell, Gates, Tony Blair, George Soros, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Eric Schmidt, Gerhard Schröder, Angelina Jolie (yah baby), Sharon Stone, Richard Gere, Victor A. Yushchenko, Sharon Peres, Peter Gabriel, The president of George, Check Republic, Brazil, SAR, Ted Turner, John McCain, Charles O. Prince, John A. Thain, William Donaldson, Lawrence H. Summers, Maria Bartiromo to name a few
Oh My Goodness Ping
Somebody better find it fast.
LOL (love your sig line!!)
I couldn't find the video branch either..
Interesting posts though...
Did you see the one about the Billionaires Club Dinner..
Then there's the article about how elites no longer need or have need of, loyalty to country, as their new 'country' is Globalism. A sort of, how they say, Capitalistic Communism... Money made, but controlled by few. So... icky poo.. on keeping this business here or there, when then can treat all business like tokens on the monopoly board, roll the dice and pick up the business and move it to a more profitable place to 'control'. (enter Twilight Zone music)..
Looks like you have to be a registered member to get at the "tape" section. But Assuredly, there is a tape. Perhaps MoveOn.org has a copy handy?
:) Probably, recruiting film??
On their front page? A letter to Carly Fiorina, written 2002, by the Editors of Red Herring, asking her to resign. The Editors of Red Herring are part of the AO (Always On) Team. Hmmm....
Still looking .. but here is one of Tony Blair at the World Economic Forum
Wellll, that has a smell about it doesn't it?? Locked outta the club.. ??
