Changing the world?

Go read this. Are you done? Good!

I would have agreed with Zakamundo, but this morning I was listening to Tehnometria on IT Conversations.

They interview Robert Scoble. Towards the end, Robert makes a really interesting point about “doubling your pennies”

The quick version is: What would you prefer? $100,000 or I’ll give you a penny, and then double each day for every 30 days.

Of course you take the penny. For the first 15 days you see nothing. But from day 20 onward…

Robert says that he sees companies all the time at day 5, day 10, 15 & 20…

It sounds to me like Zakamundo gave up at day 7…
