Personal Statement: To me the only "game in town" is how we human beings are going to learn to live together on this planet, in a way that not only lets us survive, but increasingly meets the needs of people on this planet, so that human creativity and spirit can be unleased and humanity as a whole and in its wonderful diversity can evolve, using technology to improve our lives, while also living in harmony with, and as caretakers of, our natural environment, planet earth. I am committed to do my small part to see that these goals are achieved.
