KMaus09: Keynote from Caracas

August 6, 2009

Olimpia finally forces me into a conga (she is been trying for years over several visits to Venezuela and finally succeeded). Probably the most original start to a keynote I have seen for years. Now she works in a difficult environment. She created some of the most interested KM events in Caracas for PDVSA, she was a main player in their University, a committed social worker and one of those people who can best be described as a Force of Nature, and a force for good. A powerful opening section on poverty, the economical situation in Latin America, take the road from the airport to the city in Caracas and you will see real poverty, it depresses me every time I visit.
