It's good to know that prominent people are blogging. On the other hand, big US companies are firing people for blogs and forum entries. The open co-creation and virtualization of organizations is still a quite distant dream.

There is a loud minority speaking for blogs, wikies, social media and global open innovation. The blogosphere is still for a minority playground, even though we are counted in millions and tens of millions.

After the 14-hour plane ride from the Dominican Republic, it feels good to be on the ground again. I’m also delighted to be back in South Africa. It’s been nine years since I was the first U.S. president ever to travel to this wonderful country. On that first visit, Hillary and I laid a brick at a women’s center in Johannesburg, marking the beginning of my personal commitment to help rebuild a new South Africa. Since then, I’ve tried to return as often as I can. Almost a decade later, my Foundation carries on this commitment through its work here and throughout the continent, and I’m eager to see firsthand the progress we’re helping to achieve.

Johannesburg is one of the cities partnering with my Clinton Climate Initiative to perform energy-saving renovations to their buildings. These simple, cost-effective measures, which we are working on in 16 cities around the world, will have a tremendous impact on lowering carbon emissions from urban areas while actually saving money for the buildings’ owners and creating jobs."
