Sometimes you wonder where the world is heading. Two World Forums have started, the Social one (Porto Alegre) and the Economic one (Davos): Two adjectives and an ocean between them. Again this year the two crowds won't commingle. Worse most developed countries have decided that Porto Alegre was not worth the trip. The two parts of the world iceberg won't talk to each other (at least face to face, despite what has happened in Asia). Is the situation that bad that they can't?
Let me make a suggestion. What about splitting each crowd in two and having one half of each attending the other Forum. Sun and snow together, sort of. Sometimes symbols yield unexpected outcomes.
And, guess what they could even start a joint blog!
One can always dream....
