Final thoughts on the Aspen Ideas Festival

Kai Ryssdal Jul 1, 2011

This final note today. An observation, if I might, about a week spent…thinking. ‘Cause that — in the final analysis — is what the Ideas Festival‘s all about. Lots of talking and discussing and questioning as a way to get the problems we face, and the advantages we have, front of mind. Which is great. So long as there’s some doing too.
