We are at the dawn of an era of profound transformation. A new generation of technology innovation is delivering capabilities that promise to expand economic opportunity and address some of humanity's most pressing problems. But cloud computing is creating disruption as well. People question the safety of their communities, the future of their jobs, and the prospects for their children. To ensure that technology benefits in the world, and not just the fortunate few, will require new steps by tech companies, the non-profit community, and forward-looking government policies and laws. 

The best thing your business can do these days is: Be Shared. When others excitedly share your business, a stream of clients and revenue pours in with zero effort.
