Walk On, Burma

I awake this morning to news of shots being fired out in Burma against the demonstrators against the military regime.

In the words of U2’s song “Walk On”:

Oh, oh
Walk on, walk on
What you got, they can’t steal it
No, they can’t even feel it
Walk on, walk on
Stay safe tonight

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Burma, including the monks and Aung San Suu Kyi.

David Allen on CNN’s 50 People Who Matter list

It seems to me to be quite extraordinary that someone who wrote a book on time management, David Allen, is on a list of 50 People Who Matter in the business world now, according to CNN. He’s ranked 49th on the list, but he’s there, even making it there while people such as Steve Ballmer didn’t. This has to show what a significant impact David Allen’s "Getting Things Done" concepts are having on the business world.

The whole list is a fascinating reflection of where are the trends in business and technology currently.

(This is not new news, published in June, 2006, but it’s new to me, so I’m posting it here!)
