Hot on the heels of President Obama's income inequality-focused State of the Union address, the World Economic Forum is kicking off today in Davos, Switzerland. While most of the searches associated with the event seem to reflect a desire for basic information about the confab's programming schedule, a search for "Davos and the" reveals the 2008 meeting theme, "the Power of Collaborative Innovation," finding continued relevance.
Nice to think that, despite all the tensions and divisons that Davos embodies, the collaboration and innovation that it symbolizes just as readily can be what endure in the public mind.
