This is a report I always look forward to reading. Mary Meeker includes key web trends surrounding world growth patterns, mobile momentum, what is happening in China, the new state of entrepreneurship, and perspective on high-skilled immigration. Meeker says there are now 2.4 billion web users around the world and that total is growing rapidly. Mobile usage continues to explode, but mobile advertising is still sluggish.

I was invited to share my thoughts at the Friendship Circle volunteer appreciation event from the perspective of a parent of a volunteer. I have a unique perspective as my son has special needs, yet volunteers his time with kids who have special needs.

This was my first-ever public speech, and although I was nervous as heck, felt like I did okay :)
