As you probably heard, this week New York City played host to word leaders at the United Nations, celebrities and businessmen at the Clinton Global Initiative, as well as young techies passionate about development at the Social Good conference.
Lucky for you, Humanosphere’s man on the East Coast, Tom Murphy, was there to see all the action firsthand. Despite the stuffy press rooms and being herded like cattle with other reporters into side alleys, Tom still managed to get some facetime with big names, like microfinance luminary Mohammed Yunus and Chelsea Clinton.
So, what got done? Did Bill Clinton, whose handlers have attracted criticism in the press as of late, facilitate ground-breaking new pledges to better the world? Did Mashable’s Social Good conference generate smart ideas for how to use technology in the fight against poverty?
The answer in the headline is a bit of a spoiler, but it’s really more complicated than that. Tune in below to hear Tom spill the beans – the good, the bad, and the jokes.
