Astute byline observers have already noted the latest WorldChanging addition, Nicole-Anne Boyer. Her essay contributions (today's on "The Paradox of Choice" and last week's on "Harry Potter, Deconstructed") provide welcome insights and ideas from an international perspective. And "international" is Nicole's secret middle name: born in Canada, she cut her professional teeth in Singapore and San Francisco, and now lives in Paris (while engaging in research in London).
I first met Nicole in 1998, at GBN. She struck me initially as a bit outside the usual GBN type, until I saw that she was both aware of and comfortable with her role. She was, and still is, a 21st century participant-observer, an organizational anthropologist ready to daub on the face-paint and dance while still madly taking notes.
We're very happy to welcome her to the WorldChanging team.
