“Robin Qiu asked me to write a first editorial for the newly launched on-line Service Science journal.  As I was thinking about what to write about, a speech by IBM CEO Sam Palmisano came to mind.  His speech calls for the creation of a Smarter Planet in response to the current global challenge.  As soon as I wrote my editorial, which is entitled “Welcome to Our Declaration of Interdependence,” a play on the ubiquitous ‘welcome to our website,’  I received a note from IBMer Craig Nygard pointing me to an on-line video of Palmisano’s Smarter Planet speech. I also found an excellent blog by IBMer Keith Instone that also points to an easily accessed version of the speech on the Council of Foreign Relations website.”
