Name: Derick m. Lawson

From: Maryland

Bio: Started at age 9 and have continued since to now study Computer Internetworking at age 17.

Area of Expertise: Entrepreneur/Business Leader

Topic: Getting, Sharing Information

Headline: Money for information...any kind.

Nutshell: We will inch forward to different, expensive devices that combine the function of serveral devices into one and reasearch will drive us forward to better lives where we can pay more tax and excess fees for things we don't need.

Vision: The world isn't interested in going ahead to bigger and better things; each person looks forward to his big and better wallet. Those who don't care aren't to have anything to do with the internet because they won't survive, with the exception of those at Google.

We are capable of so much more but because of our interest in having that nicer car with leather, gps, remote start, and top speed of 260 miles an hour which never goes faster than 55 on the freeway.

Waste is our enemy and forever will be til we understand what we are capable of and use ourselves to excel in the areas of chosen interest without a prime goal for getting more money or power than the man next to us.

The only thing that drives us forward is the coorporate leaders that know we like better and new, so they create it, we buy, more money flows into their pockets. That is our system and will be until and uneventful event destroys us.

Yet that's not the question. The answer is we will inch forward to different, expensive devices that combine the function of serveral devices into one and reasearch will drive us forward to better lives where we can pay more tax and excess fees for things we don't need.
