I thought I was done with commencements for about a year, when someone sent me a link to the address Paul Hawken gave at the University of Portland. Paul's an environmentalist, an entrepreneur, and author and -- apparently -- quite the platform speaker. Think of him as Jim Kirk meets James Hansen, and you won't be far wrong.
So, rather than me attempting to interpret or summarize Hawken's message, here's the link. Take a few minutes and read it for yourself. It'll be time well spent.
