  • Michael,

    Thank you for taking the trouble to reply, and for your encouragement. I'm very excited about the future.

    Life, by decades (my take, for what it's worth):

    Age 10 Life is great, I'm gung ho.
    Age 20 Now I'm somebody--watch out world!
    Age 30 I have the know-how--and the enthusiasm,too!
    Age 40 I am very capable; and, my word, am I ever responsible!
    Age 50 I'm in my prime--and in the swim.
    Age 60 I know what's really important in life.
    Age 70 I know a lot of the answers in life.
    Age 80 I'm beginning to know the right questions.
    Age 90 How much time do I have left to get it right?
    Age 100 Every day is sweet, and every moment counts.
    Age 110 I know what I'd do if I had to do it all over.
    Age 120 They never gave me the guidebook to life!

    (Of course, for 70 on, all I can do is extrapolate from what I've seen.)

    Best wishes in 2014 and beyond!

    Candace

  • Phenomenal, Michael! I had enjoyed the reading; but the slide show was riveting and so contemporary. Like TED--what better compliment could I give?
    This has helped me dream big with what I can do with my life as I turn 62--and with what I am praying for for the world on a universal scale! It can begin to--has begun to--happen now! Thank you so much! May you be blest along with all visionary, inspired, earnest, risk-taking, hard-working people.

  • THE AGE OF SCALE

    1. THE AGE OF SCALE LONDON 2013
    2. I’VE BEEN THINKING A LOT ABOUT SCOPE, SCALE, AND SPEED
    3. SCOPE WHAT WE CHOOSE TO WORK ON
    4. SCALE HOW BIG OUR WORK IS
    5. SPEED THE PACE AT WHICH WE MOVE
    6. SCOPE SCALE SPEED THE WORLD HAS CHANGED IN EXACTLY THESE THREE WAYS
    7. BUT MOST GLAMS* HAVEN’T NOTICED *GALLERIES, LIBRARIES, ARCHIVES, MUSEUMS
    8. MOST ORGS HAVEN’T NOTICED
    9. WE FORGED OUR DREAMS IN A SIMPLER TIME
    10. WHEN SUCCESS MEANT COLLECTIONS
    11. BUILDINGS
    12. AND STAFF
    13. BUT NOW BILLIONS CAN ENGAGE AND CONTRIBUTE
    14. OUTCOMES THAT WERE ONCE INCONCEIVABLE HAVE BECOME ROUTINE
    15. AND NEW TOOLS SUGGEST A NEW APPROACH TO THE MISSION
    16. NEW DREAMS
    17. You can tell a lot about someone’s dreams by what they choose to measure… and what they measure with.

It is a heritage that took decades and decades to come to fruition but will be wiped out in a moment. You are not only about to make philistines of yourselves, but philistines of us all."

And, in their place, we will have thousands more public spaces where you are simply the money in your pocket, rather than the hunger in your heart. Kids--poor kids--will never know the fabulous, benign quirk of self-esteem of walking into "their" library and thinking, "I have read 60 percent of the books in here. I am awesome." Libraries that stayed open during the Blitz will be closed by budgets.
