The World is Flat

...says Thomas Friedman, in a New York Times Magazine article on globalization. Friedman examines how various forces have created a "platform for collaboration" that is helping to make the world a level playing field.

This has been building for a long time. Globalization 1.0 (1492 to 1800) shrank the world from a size large to a size medium, and the dynamic force in that era was countries globalizing for resources and imperial conquest. Globalization 2.0 (1800 to 2000) shrank the world from a size medium to a size small, and it was spearheaded by companies globalizing for markets and labor. Globalization 3.0 (which started around 2000) is shrinking the world from a size small to a size tiny and flattening the playing field at the same time. And while the dynamic force in Globalization 1.0 was countries globalizing and the dynamic force in Globalization 2.0 was companies globalizing, the dynamic force in Globalization 3.0 -- the thing that gives it its unique character -- is individuals and small groups globalizing. Individuals must, and can, now ask: where do I fit into the global competition and opportunities of the day, and how can I, on my own, collaborate with others globally? But Globalization 3.0 not only differs from the previous eras in how it is shrinking and flattening the world and in how it is empowering individuals. It is also different in that Globalization 1.0 and 2.0 were driven primarily by European and American companies and countries. But going forward, this will be less and less true. Globalization 3.0 is not only going to be driven more by individuals but also by a much more diverse -- non-Western, nonwhite -- group of individuals. In Globalization 3.0, you are going to see every color of the human rainbow take part.

Friedman is brilliant on this topic. I recommend The Lexus and the Olive Tree to anyone who hasn't read it.

Hi Giovanni Rodriguez, There are not too many good Info Products related sites that aren't full of junk posts, search engine scraping and except for keyword stuffing, nothing useful related to Info Products. It was nice to find an exception today when I happened upon your site. Keep it going.

Hi ##NAME##, while looking for info on affiliate betting sports, I saw your blog ##TITLE## and congrats. It's exciting stuff, like the new Sports Arbitrage Software with its five way to make guaranteed winnings. Sports arbitrage, as some may not know, is simply betting on both sides of a sports event - and with this software you should double a same amount bet every 20 days. So, In 12 months a $100 bet wins $1825, and $1,000 wins $18,250. That's a 152% return a month! You don't have to buy our software program for arbitrage unless you think you want the most successful system, and like it's done in only 15 minutes a day. And, unlike a HYIP offer - YOU CAN'T LOSE! Better check this money making ##LINK## for 2006 and be ready start the new year happy and profitable. Get a special deal for affiliates. And good blogging in 2006!

Google Page Rank updates. I have been searching and searching and finally found out that google does an actual page rank update 4 times a year. But behind the scenes they are checking the current ranks all the time so you may see 0/0 in the page rank bar but if you do a future page rank check it will display what will happen on the next update. If I am wrong, someone please let me know! Post a comment on my blog. Thanks! page rank
