"To accomplish the extraordinary, you must seek extraordinary people."

Every year since 1999, we have hosted The Edge Annual Dinner [17] (sometimes referred to as “The Billionaire’s Dinner” [17]). Guests have included the leading third culture [18] intellectuals of our time, dining and conversing with the founders of Amazon, AOL, eBay, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, PayPal, Space X, Skype, Twitter. It is a remarkable gathering of outstanding minds—the people that are rewriting our global culture.

"Those present were the owners of Google, Twitter, Bill Gates, Benoit Mandelbrot (fractals), Craig Venter (Human Genome Project). Do I need to drop more names? A bomb at dinner and we would lose much of a certain creative intelligence that drives our world and our future, or the future that these people have created for all of us. The technologists have now become the center of power." —O Globo (Brazil)
