    I also thought the "everybody should see this" comment was insensitive for the same reasons you state Stephan. But then I react to anyone who says I "should" do anything. Have your own experiences and sure tell me how it was for you, but don't tell me how I should live my life.

    Also, while this is a bit of a "should" activity, I'd never thought about what influence a person with Bezos level wealth could have on a very large scale. It sure makes me wonder what I would do.

    Welcome Ken, I remember enjoying your "Making Java Groovy" book a few years ago. I must have missed the coffee book Campbell is talking about, but sounds interesting.
