Seems like Al Gore really does understand that he has a much better chance to influence public opinion than gain public approval. It was announced today that Mr. Gore is joining the venture firm of Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield & Byers and intends to be “hands-on” involved in their Green-Tech/Clean-Tech investments.
Hopefully, Mr. Gore will have more of an impact than Colin Powell has had. Although I must admit that he Powell could be doing lots of things that are just not publicized.
Recently, we have all experienced just how charismatic Gore is when talking about his passion. After all, he has won a number of awards for his work from diverse places like the Academy Awards and Nobel Prize.
My only question is just how hands on will he be if all the action is on Sand Hill Road and he is “kicking around Nashville where he plans to stay“. Maybe he can be a catalyst for using high tech products like conferencing systems to show others the advantages of these systems.
