One world

I am spending a really interesting day with AIG, the biggest insurance company in the world, at their headquarters in the tallest building in Lower Manhattan.

People have often commented that doing social computing must have been easier at a communications organisation such as the BBC but to be honest as I get to meet more and more people from more and more diverse organisations I am convinced that the commonalities far outweigh the differences.

There is something reassuring to me about the way everyone under the sun has much the same fears, aspirations hopes and sorrows and this wonderful globe at the centre of the observatory at the top of the building seemed an appropriate image.
