Yesterday was Holocaust Remembrance Day. I grew up reading all kinds of holocaust literature such as Mila 18 and The Wall. Those were times and events that had a profound effect on my life view. I'm glad to see that it is being remembered.
Also, recommend looking at the UN 2007 Year in Review on the UN's Webcast site.
The annual meeting of the World Economic Forum at Davos ended yesterday and included this interesting interactive video forum on YouTube discussing "What one thing do you think that countries, companies or individuals must do to make the world a better place in 2008?"
Here are webcasts of the entire event. Included are several sessions focused on technology.
