Thomas Barnett, who I interviewed on IT Conversations 18 months ago is in Alaska and writing some very good stuff. I love to see his spin on the news--of course that's because I agree with him so often! The very definition of genius.
Just read a few of the postings from April 4th. For example:
- Those who protest Nixon's trip to China...
- Plant the flag and give 'em the vector
- Economic freedom trumps political freedom
As I've said before (I think) Barnett's work provides a backdrop on which you can pin a ton of seemingly unrelated global events and see it start to make sense. If you don't agree with him, develop another theory that works so well as his. I haven't found such a theory or such an eloquent proponent.
