"We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do."

- Gandhi’s actual quote, often paraphrased as “Be the change you want to see in the world.

I believe we are in a critical moment in our civilization’s development, one where we will face a number of fateful decisions about how we interact with each other, with
business, and with government.

The decisions we make during this period will frame the kind of world we’ll leave to future generations.

Who will control the data we create? What access will we allow citizens to the machinations of government? What kind of people will we become when every single one of us is deeply connected to a socially aware platform like Facebook?

Are we building systems – in healthcare, energy, finance – that are too complicated for any of us to understand, much less control?

"We are not seats or eyeballs or end users or consumers. We are human beings, and our reach exceeds your grasp. Deal with it."
