Happy Birthday Mr. Lincoln, and George Washington too. Remember when both presidents had their own holiday, and so did we?
I’ve had an usually large dose of government recently. I’ve just returned from Japan this week where I met with local and prefecture (state) government officials, university and private industry, in part about economic development and the software industry. We share the same challenges where governments are concerned; with economies failing, crisis must include getting much smarter about the investments we make to provide the greatest possible public benefit. The trip left me with much to think about and, as always, happy to be home.
