    The eternal challenge to get things done is related poignantly in your letter on
    January 29, and brings to mind the 7 wonders of the world that enable people to
    cope. There are 2 more wonders of humanity that deserve notice, and possibly
    another on the way that enables a culture of knowledge, as set out in a letter
    on 020117....


    I am sharing your important message, particularly with folks in technology
    working to solve the dilemma you pose, and to some in education who recognize
    that our young people need a culture of knowledge to meet the challenge of a new
    world order.
