    David Ng as in Science Scouts?

    This sounds like one of the best ideas I’ve heard for ages.

    Sadly, I strongly suspect that Big Pharma will do their best to break it, either by litigation bombing, or by simply ignoring license terms that they don’t like, and defying UAEM and its members to do something about it.

    OK, I haven’t RTF(abulous)A, but I’m from a developing country, and I agree with this sentiment A LOT!

    I understand that knowledge is power, has value, but please come share it with us. Better than financing, is sharing your fantastic knowledge. Especially in areas like health, infra-structure, that could give much life result.

    I also would like to say that it doesn’t matter if you are high up in hierarchy or not. Perhaps it’s even better if not. We need the vision, sure, but just as much as the hands-on teachings. Someone who has worked in huge complex, developed world, infra-structure has a lot to tell us. That would be a lot of help, to tell us first hand. We get a lot of politicians talk, need more worker’s stories.

    I understand that there is a lot of resistance, both personal and obstacles of reality, but I imagine we have a lot to offer as well. Perhaps learn from us how we find happiness in life under different circunstances.

    Anyhow, I’m sure it will be very appreciated. Your ‘pals’ in developed country will love to have you as guests, even if for a brief vacation.
