Seeing the United Arab Emirates
Beneblog: Technology Meets Society
NOVEMBER 19, 2008
The UAE are in an incredible state of construction: I don't know of many places on earth (other than China) where so much has been built so fast. I went to Dubai for the first ever Summit on the Global Agenda. The Summit pulled together experts on roughly seventy different topics to discuss the current and future state of major issue areas: areas as varied as water, mining, nanotechnology, governance, economic development, economic meltdown (kidding) and so on.
