Thanks to our governors you can now see and hear a 45 minute presentation by Thomas Friedman on why our world is flat.

Some have already surmised that globalization has rendered the U.S. in what may soon be a "less than" position. Others may resonate with Friedman's assessment that they've been asleep. But all will find that he's got a handle on an interesting dilemma.

If it's true . . . that we've moved from globalization 1.0 where it was all about the country, to 2.0 where it was all about the company to 3.0 where it's all about the individual, the church has new avenues, possibilities, methodologies et al to explore.

With changing technologies, practices and players, we can embrace or compete. I know which option I favor.
