This is a pretty sober assessment.  As such it makes no predictions but does show many of the possibilities.
Are we witnessing the beginning of a third Palestinian intifada? It's too soon to tell, but the spiral of revenge attacks is extremely dangerous.

Executive level in all forms of automation.  Most recently (9+ years) specialized in health IT as well as its relationship to human services.  Also involved in progressive politics and causes.  I see organic agriculture as providing the material basis for a new broad based economy that puts our collective economic interests in line with the needs of the environment.  Always looking to do new things with technology especially as it benefits the majority of people on this planet.
