"India is becoming the knowledge center of the world; it should take the lead in this"Message To David Pollak
Chairman Pollak, Sir. Do me a favor. Pass on this email to the Governor. You yourself are someone I hope to have on my corporate team some day, even if only like Terry McAuliffe tipping his toe in companies while still politicking full time. You are one of those people to have on one's side every day if possible.
Message To Governor Spitzer
Governor. Granted its been dramatic, but I see a silver lining to the cloud. I have a young, ambitious tech startup. The vision statement is "to connect every human mind to the web, and then some." That can not be a vision statement for one company, likely a few different industries, a vision statement for an ecosystem of industries and companies. But it is what it is.
My company hopes to play a key, defining role in the next era of computing, the IC era. Mainframes to PCs to ICs. IC, Internet Computer.
Internet access is the voting right for this century, and the agenda is global. Politics is war by other means. Business is politics by other means. You would come in as a small investor to start with. And you take six to nine months off. Then we together create a role for you that will get you plenty of telecommuting. You are plenty rich to never have worked, but you are too young to retire. You have not lived half your life yet. If you want to live long, get into another intense career. Don't tank, don't drift, don't wallow in the mud of tabloid attention. I promise you greater intensity than what you felt as Attorney General. We are going to be picking fights as we create markets, invent markets, eat into markets, destroy markets for others. Feel like a fresh college graduate all over again. Launch a new career. If the idea of public service through elected office is to do good, you will do more good for more people through this than anything you have done yet.
We will also be spearheading a major effort down the line of spreading democracy the progressive way, the war of communications technology way, the nonviolent way. We might be part of some battles with the military-industrial complex part of the way, and that's okay, you will love it. The government can be a huge customer.

My man Friday on my corporate team is a guy named Adam Carson who starts looking like my personal hero Larry Ellison when he grows a slight beard. Adam wrote directly to the Morgan Stanley CEO Mack to create his 2.0 job a few years ago which he has now duly quit to come along with the startup. When he first said he will quit, they promoted him, but he quit regardless. Adam has raised most of the early seed money from his personal circle of contacts. Right now he is on a cross country road trip - his vehicle is much smaller than mine was, but then he is not the top guy on the team, is he? - with his wonderful Romanian girlfriend: he telecommutes to work. He learned this from me: before you take over a country, it is a good idea to take a good look at it.
Ellison has said he is too uncompromising to be any good in politics, precisely the trait that has made him a legendary CEO. Your candidate was better on merit but the legislators went ahead and appointed someone mediocre and you went ahead and campaigned against legislators from your own party who were part of such an idiotic move. Mofos. That uncompromising subservience to merit is not a bad personality trait at all if you are in a functional setting that Albany is not. My way you don't have to go through the indignity of asking for votes to make large, positive impact, especially votes of unaccountable Albany warlords who function best in smoke-filled rooms, never coming out to see daylight.
So what's it gonna be? I hope we can cook something up. We are listing this baby on Nasdaq. Come be part of the Silicon City dreams. Someone uniquely gifted as you deserves a front seat. You are perfect to be part of my team. This swing could last a few decades. All the early people will get hugely rich.
Let's meet and talk. I am not in the same borough but I am in the same city, the magic city, first place on earth where I felt really comfortable, first hometown I ever had. (Madhesi Movement Victory In Nepal)

Obama's calculus to victory Sydney Morning Herald, Australia In politics, there is spin and doctoring and downright monstering on message management, and it is waged with no holds barred 24/7. It's the foghorns of war. And then there is calculus and the clarity of numbers. ...... Obama is in fact closer to clinching the Democratic nomination. .... Even if Clinton wins Pennsylvania 55-45 per cent, Clinton will net a gain of only 15 delegates. In the polls today, the candidates are tied in Michigan and Clinton is comfortably ahead in Florida. Even if those two states revote, and the outcome tracks today's polls, Clinton would net perhaps 30 delegates. ..... Obama for his part is expected to do well in North Carolina, Oregon, Montana and South Dakota, where 250 delegates are at stake ....... he has more voter intensity behind him. ...... Democratic voters, by a 48-38 per cent margin, say that Obama has the better chance of beating McCain than Clinton. ..... Bill Clinton is now viewed unfavourably (42-45) by more voters for the first time in five years. ..... "I have the most delegates, have won the most states, have won them more convincingly, and am the more electable. Ratify the verdict of the voters of our party, and do the right thing." .... It will be hard for most of the supers to reach a different conclusion. .... Obama today is poised to win the nomination.
