Bill and Melinda Gates are doing a great job spending their money on healthcare and education. They dedicated there annual report of the foundation this year to their biggest benefitter Warren Buffett.
The world is doing really well. Poverty is plummeting, child death are down by 50% and more then 122 million children have been saved. Melinda and Bill are presenting the numbers in this letter.
But take a look at the best presenter in numbers Hans Rosling who died 2 weeks ago. He was the beste authentific presenter of statistics ever. God I LOVED his presentations.. Here he tells the story of 200 countries, 200 years in 4 minutes. BRILLIANT

And when women can decide when to have kids the survival rate is twice as high and the total amount of kids goes to 2!
We have come a long way but still lots of work.
The goal is 0%! Poverty, Child deaths all the large diseases.

Peter Thiel en de bazen van Silicon Valley op de koffie bij The Donald en Mike Pence. De relatie tussen Trump en de tech CIO’s is niet bepaald goed te noemen.
Jeff Bezos (Amazon), Tim Cook (CEO Apple), Elon Musk (medebedenker oprichter Paypal, Tesla, oprichter Space X) , Sheryl Sandberg (2de vrouw van Facebook), Safra Cats (Oracle) en Peter Thiel (rechts naast Trump, miljonair, Paypal, heeft geïnvesteerd in Facebook en Uber en het geweten van de technologiereuzen. Hij investeert altijd in goede bedrijven en heeft geen goede relatie met de pers (hij spendeerde 10 miljoen om een website uit de lucht te krijgen die hem niet beviel). De Rasputin van Silicon Valley. Twitter was niet uitgenodigd…
Wat wil Trump hier nu eigenlijk mee? Het is een eerste aanzet tot een zoektocht naar de gemeenschappelijke belangen. De techneuten willen de hightech immigranten, ze willen winsten uit het buitenland naar Amerika halen en lagere belastingen.
Hieronder een 10 minuten filmpje hoe alle techneuten de Trump Tower binnen komen. Vanaf 6.35 stelt iedereen zich aan tafel voor en wordt er een start gemaakt met de dag:
Peter Thiel was de eerste die zich als Silicon Valley biljonair uitsprak voor Trump. Hij is Republikein, christelijk en gay en sprak in het openbaar op de Republikeinse Conventie:
Book Review : the Mastering The Internet of Things and a Interview with one of the writer Gilles Robichon.

Chris Nordlinger worked for Cisco and is now writing content for VMware and magazines like Forbes and Fortune. He is currently writing a book on how we will become 120 years old thanks to technology. According to Chris we are 2 years behind all the IoT developments in Silicon Valley. Now he is here in The Netherlands the whole week to scout innovative startups who want some VC in Silicon Valley and talk to big corporates who are working on IoT.
Are you a startup or corporate that is already doing great stuff with IoT? Do you think Chris has to see what great projects you are working on? Then I want to challenge you! Make an appointment with Chris and show him what kind of great stuff we are doing here in The Netherlands or talk with him if you want to innovate. He is in Amsterdam for another week.
Op Schiphol ontmoette ik Reinier van den Biggelaar van de BastaGroup. Hij kwam net terug uit Dublin waar hij de IoT World conferentie heeft bezocht. Wat was zijn indruk van deze Europese tegenhanger van het Amerikaanse IoT World?
