  • Bipartisanship begins with seeing the other side's humanity

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- One convention down, one to go. To borrow from a more successful Clint Eastwood appearance: It's halftime in America. It was certainly an amazing week in Tampa, and I'm not talking about empty chairs -- or empty suits or empty speeches....
  • Brain dead: Why is D.C.'s answer to the jobs crisis a deficit solution?

    Last week, President Obama proposed an initiative to map the complete structure and activity of the brain. The so-called BRAIN project (Brain Research Through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies) would kick off next year with $100 million in funding...
  • The jobs crisis: It may not be 'breaking news,' but it's definitely 'broken news'

    BREAKING! This just in: the economy is terrible and the country is suffering its worst jobs crisis since the Depression . . . developing . . . Of course, this isn't actually breaking news -- it's aching news -- and, before the tragic bombings in Boston,...
  • Groundswell forming to redefine 'success'

    I'd like to thank everybody who participated in HuffPost's conference last week on The Third Metric: Redefining Success Beyond Money and Power. It was our first women's conference, and it was also the first event held in my new apartment -- a...

  • Inside the Twitterverse

    Win the Moment. That's the theme of the two-day conference I just spoke at, that Twitter is holding for its employees in San Francisco. In many ways, it's a surprisingly modest topic, since whether Twitter has won the moment is not very much in doubt. It'...

    LONDON -- "UK population's happiness is on the up," trumpeted a headline in the Guardian. What the headline was referring to are the results of a survey conducted by the Office for National Statistics meant to measure Britain's national well-being....
  • Time to put service back on the national agenda

    Hello from 8,000 feet. I'm in Aspen, where the conversation, thankfully, is much thicker than the air. I'm here for the inaugural 21st Century National Service Summit, sponsored by the Franklin Project, a new venture of the Aspen Institute. For two days,...
  • Wisdom and courage, not technology, will point the way to a brighter future

    I'm happy to be back breathing the hot and muggy though wonderfully sea-level air of New York, having just returned from the Aspen Ideas Festival. There were, as usual, many great speakers, but one of the speeches that became the talk of the festival...
  • Is sleep deprivation the reason the Romney campaign is blowing it?

    "Saturday Night Live" opened its new season with a sketch in which President Obama acknowledges that "things aren't great, the economy's in the tank" and "the job market is horrible," but says he's not worried because his campaign has a "secret weapon" to...
