One of the main reasons I came to Aspen was to attend the 40th Birthday of my friend Jack Hidary. The other one was the meeting of the Trustees of the Clinton Foundation, but for confidentiality sake I did not do videos of that meeting. In this video Jack Hidary, who is so good at explaining anything (I am very surprised he doesn´t teach at any university), explains how the Aspen Ideas Festival came about and what happens there.
From the half day I spent there my impressions were very positive. They seem to manage to be all over the place and yet…focused.
