Bill Gross is founder of the technology incubator Idealab and more companies than I can count (he says “100 companies in last 30 years” so perhaps I can count that high). Mr. Gross tweeted “while on [his] quest for learning in life and at conferences." (Follow him on Twitter as well as on his blog at http://www.BillGross.com.)
So, a tip of the hat to you, sir: for me, the cost to attend WEF virtually and digest everything on the Davos stream in real time in my PJ's: $0 (priceless ;)
With his coverage and that of the other quarter of attendees on Twitter, I was able to keep up in real time (which explains why I was cranky and tired this week) and almost felt as though I were in Davos. I appreciated the openess and how many people tweeted, published blog posts from the event, and the access the press had to attendees, with sessions live online in real-time (http://wef.ch/live).
But, sadly, without the incredible Swiss hospitality, food and snow. And the Occupy protesters!
So, from his tweets, here are Bill’s “Twenty Amazing Facts Learned at WEF 2012”
WRT number 19: $9K in transfers?!?
