I’m not going to lie – presenting at conferences like TED and Davos is scary business. But it doesn’t hold a candle to presenting to an all-girl’s school on the subject of breaking rules. I don’t normally spend much time around females grade k-12, and it was daunting as hell. Once they settled down, though, they were exceedingly polite, and afterwards I was deluged with kids wanting to present their business ideas to me. One 13 year old girl very seriously wanted to know who I’d suggest about writing a language parser for dissecting bills passing through congress to pull out hidden riders. Clearly, the future is matriarchy.
