最近，之前一起受訓的同事提及Cheers雜誌提到了未來產業外移、白領階級開始失業與全球化的議題；另一位同事則分享了Thomas Friendman的演講。我想這些是我們這個年代的人多多少少可以參考的看法，時代在變，未來會怎麼樣，誰也說不準囉。<演講網頁 in MIT OCW>
在當今的社會中，很有可能你下次拍的 X 光片是由印度邦加羅爾的 Bhavva 幫你判讀，或者是就像 Thomas Friedman 的第一手經驗一樣，「穿著睡袍的祖母貝蒂」在她鹽湖城的家中替你預定 Jet Blue 的機票。在「全球化 3.0 」的世界中， Friedman 認為，身在遙遠國度的人將會成為市場上的重要關鍵。
Chances are good that Bhavya in Bangalore will read your next x-ray, or as Thomas Friedman learned first hand, “Grandma Betty in her bathrobe” will make your Jet Blue plane reservation from her Salt Lake City home. In “Globalization 3.0,” Friedman contends, people from far-flung places will become principal players in the marketplace.

Definition of globalisation
Question: What is the truest definition of Globalization?
Answer: Princess Diana's death.
Question: How come?
Answer: An English princess with an Egyptian boyfriend crashes in a French tunnel, driving a German car with a Dutch engine, driven by a Belgian who was drunk on Scottish whiskey, followed closely by Italian Paparazzi, on Japanese motorcycles, treated by an American doctor, using Brazilian medicines!
And this is sent to you by an American, using Bill Gates' technology Which he enjoyed stealing from the Japanese. And you are probably reading this on one of the IBM clones that use Taiwanese-made chips, and Korean-made monitors, assembled by Bangladeshi workers in a Singapore plant, transported by lorries driven by Indians, hijacked by Indonesians, unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen, trucked by Mexican illegal aliens, and finally sold to you.
That, my friend, is Globalization! Finally, an explanation in English.
