Here are my slides from a keynote presentation on Sunday at Columbia University's Social Enterprise Bootcamp on Sunday November 20, 2011.

I talk about the iContact story, corporate social responsibility, the major improvements we have made as a human species over the past forty years in life expectancy, infant mortality, and per capita income, and how our generation can end extreme poverty in our lifetime.
