[...] Of course, this is right up Jarvis’s alley: The WEF annual meeting has been a closed session for the world’s machers (ed. Yiddish-(makher) important person; big shot, a ‘mover): an exclusive list of 2,000-plus heads of state and of corporations. But they have been quite serious about opening up the conversation into and out of Davos. Indeed, the theme of this year’s confab is about the shifting power equation and the tools used for the Davos Conversation page are very much a catalyst of that change. [...]

A message to each and every leader and individual who truly desires Peace on Earth. 13 Minutes to Change i*am here today to humbly speak as a representative of Peace, with the hope that others who hear this message will also find the peace within their own heart to listen. The entire world is now confronted with the opportunities to begin the creation of World*Peace in earnest, these opportunities are now abundant and looming very large on our collective horizon, as the worlds people begin to awaken to the truth of their shared connection and to the reality of its use and power. There are many fine organizations and individuals working throughout the world on the myriad of issues which confront the stability of the planets social and environmental structure. It is these social issues which are the true threat to humanity. As individual leaders and groups continue to ignore the people in mass, and continue to degrade the social and environmental resource structure, the people and the planet herself will remove those leaders from power and take control of their own destiny. The single largest global risk our world faces is the continued disconnect of the people from their representatives, despite technologies ability to connect the global community, it has failed to recognize its ability and responsibility to offer hope and a sense of direction to the very community it is connecting. Revolution is the historical path of man, however there has always been a choice, to stand and struggle for absolute tradition, to violently demand and seize control, or to simply remove the (R) from Revolution and take the option which is reveled, Evolution of the gradual and intelligently designed change for the greater good. Shifting the imbalance in expenditure of money, time, resource, and human potential both physically and mentally from the production of weapons and substances which harm the people and planet is of paramount immediacy. Changing the use of these past ways is also of immediate importance to the survival of not only each individual citizen, but especially to the leaders which the people allow to lead them. We are in the Age of 13 Minutes of change, in 13 minutes or less, the people are aware of the actions which will affect them, and in 13 minutes or less they will have made their decision on the course of action to be taken. And as our technology spreads and advances, so to will the speed and learning curve of this equation of change. It is a leaders responsibility to at the very least keep in pace with the desire of the people and it is the peoples responsibility to insure their leaders are aware of those desires and that they are not overwhelmingly bias to or against any single group. Never in human history have the leaders welcomed or solicited the global populations opinion or assistance in creating world peace, without the use or call for violent action. Today is the day to change that reality, today is the day for the leaders to stand together and humbly ask the people to lead and help them in their efforts to end conflict in this world. Many have and will call me a fool, but this is not about me*, those who point the accusing finger and cry fool, world peace can never be, that is the true threat to the peoples dream, that is the voice of FEAR screaming to be heard above the angels song of peace, fear is the enemy which continues to consume our children's potential. Peace is The*Way Forward The people have dreamed and manifested this for thousands of years and they see now that it is going to be their responsibility to create it, and their responsibility to hold leaders accountable for the integrity of their truth. And so i*am here to humbly offer on behalf of Peace and all those who desire its creation to begin in earnest, to present the first collective baby step for the world to make . . . So i offer the concept of the people and their leaders deciding together to commit their eff[...]

The problem with Western, esp. US, policies is that those policies are unduly concentrated on the wrong priorities whereas China, India, and (yes!) North Korea are largely neglected as new opportunities/threats. We will continue those policies at our own ever faster growing peril! Regards, Val Samonis, PhD, CPC Lithuania, Canada

It appears if you are lucky enough you can have your video shown to one of the leaders and they’ll be asked to respond. He suggests putting them up on YouTube tagged “davos07”. [...]

As well as webcasting many of the seminars they have also invited the public to submit video questions and responses. In addition they will also be setting up a Davos Conversation page which will collate media related to the event from around the web. [...]

Jeff and Robert, For the record, I'm not a big fan of Davos. In a sentence, it's a rich man's club. But Jeff is right in saying we should enlarge the conversation. I think each one of us could tape a message from someone who DOES NOT have access to a webcam or the internet. Davos should hear from people who are too disenfranchised to be on the net. I am thinking especially of the handicapped, of poor folks in the inner city, and immigrant workers in the rural hinterland. I myself am in Hong Kong right now and working on an interview with a garbage collector who wants a raise and more time off. The people attending Davos need to hear from the poorest of the poor. If they disregard what they hear, as they have all these years, that will be their loss. If one out of a thousand guys lends an ear, more power to him.

Jeff I'd put up a video entry if I had the means, but I can't figure out how to get my super 8 movie camera to connect to the USB port. I've been watching TV since 1948 and still don't "get it". It's great for pictures, but ideas don't go over well. I'm not even too enamored with stand up lectures as is done in college. Dialogs, as in seminars, can be useful (your preferred type of interaction), but passive listening is less effective. I know I'm in the minority, but most scholarly knowledge is still transmitted via the written word. Whether this is just inertia or is required by the density of the material to be presented only time will tell. Even if I had the means I don't see the value in posting a question, these types of forums are usually a means for people to validate their already existing positions. Perhaps there will be some surprises, I wait to be proven wrong.
