5.0 out of 5 stars Frames the discussion!, February 25, 2012
I work on Capitol Hill in Washington DC and am often engaged in conversations centered on the rapid speed at which technology has surpassed the ability of our Congress to react. SOPA and PIPA are but one example. The Cybersecurity Bill floating around Congress right now is at the nascence of a long bitter battle between private sector businesses, the public sector, and national security. Abundance has given me the ability to quickly frame the discussion about the power of innovation and technology and its great promise and potential to achieve domestic and global initiatives. Because time is the most valuable commodity up here, I no longer compete with the clock. Diamandas and Kotler have done all the work for me; arming me with data, reference, and talking points that quickly shape conversation and inform legislation.

4.0 out of 5 stars More than a CD, June 21, 2002
This review is from: Facing Future (Audio CD)
Having an opportunity to work in Honolulu for 8 months, I attempted to see as much of O'ahu as possible. Before being lulled to Hawai'i read and try to understand what the IZ laments about. This Hawai'i of yesteryear he speaks of is still attempting to thrive in a culture that demands assimilation. In time, you will recognize the impact outsiders have had upon this land. Tread lightly and know that you are a guest of these beautiful islands and culture. Thanks for the wake-up call IZ.
