Doing good and well

Business and technology drive the human race forward and have proven to be the most powerful force for getting things done. But they also screw things up royally. Destroy the environment; turn slaves out of FoxConn employees; create wedges of enormous inequality and drive mass consumerism of stuff we don't need and never knew we wanted. Millions across the world have no clean water, food or medicine while we obsess over what rendering our app's 'Next' button should have and what Techcrunch has to say about the latest bowel movements of Silicon Valley. I'll share some ideas as to how we can sleep better at night and change the world (while still getting that 'Next' button spot-on).
