raph (and others interested in trust and trust metrics) : I don't know if you've already seen this, but I recently found out about an interesting global trust survey published by the World Economic Forum ; the page is called "Results of the Survey on Trust."
jfleck : Thanks for the interesting link. I personally found this excerpt from the memo just a wee bit disturbing :
CNN-TV audio feed will undoublty be our first on air coverage.... They were first by a mile in 1991 during the Persian Gulf War and again on September 11th. Despite all the news sources out there they are the best in spot situations and could be first again.
jamesh : Thanks for the info about GTK. I figured that GTK would flip the orientation of widgets like labels and such, but didn't realize that it would also change the display order of the elements in other widgets. Nice.
