Using Your Skills to Change the World

Sick of selling widgets, or lobbying for crank shafts union? We all want to change the world, but we wonder how it can happen. Our skills aren't the kind that would lead us to believe digging wells in Africa or measuring glaciers in Antartica is in our near future. So how do we do it? This presentation discusses how to find mindful ways to make our skills matter, directly or indirectly, and thus change the world.
