I had the opportunity in each roundtable to give the 3-minute presentation of our work to the 20 - 30 discussants. I sat next to Senator Alan Cranston, Arms Negotiator Max Kampelman, Astronaut Prince Sultan, and Netherlands Prime Minister Ruud Lubbers. I was also invited to introduce our work at the Youth Summit of students from around the world.
It was very heady company, and many delegates were very intrigued with the GENI solution. I'll mention a few people whom I met personally, so you can see our new level of contact: President of Visa in the European Community, Chairman of Gallup Polls, President of Worldwatch Institute, Chairman of the Radjiv Ghandi Foundation, Director of the David Packard Foundation (of Hewlett-Packard), John Naisbitt (Megatrends), Tony Robbins's support enables this, and I want to thank you personally for your contribution.
I've enclosed our Strategic Position Statement and project goals for your review. If you know of an individual or organization who can help forward these aims, please contact them and keep us informed.
