The Week Ahead

By - January 23, 2005

WefA quick heads up – the coming week promises to be a big one in the world of search, if the birds flying around my in box are any indication. However, I am away the entire week in Europe, so posting might be light (I’m told there will be WiFi where I will be, but you never know…). In case any readers might also be there, I’ll be at the World Economic Forum in Davos. This is my second trip there – I first went in 2001, but couldn’t afford it over the past few years. This year they have been kind enough to extend me a pass, and I will be posting as I can. On the first day a group of “Young Global Leaders” (how they come up with these names…) will be at a meeting “aimed at establishing a framework for understanding the problems and risks we face in the coming decades and beyond.” I am honored to be one of them, though a bit baffled how it all came about.

The WEF has a blog, as well, though for more personal coverage, you might watch Loic LeMeur’s.
