I started this blog in the summer of 2005 initially to publish daily comments and organize reports and news in the field of multicultural communications and best practices in emerging markets. Thousands of visitors later the site is well-indexed and continues to reach larger audiences each day. And the focus has grown to additional topics. On June 1st, 2006 I opened The 2050 Group (www.the2050group.com), a new agency devoted to providing clients with Internet strategies, media relations/marketing/advertising, and strategies for reaching emerging markets. The agency's client list has grown quickly since then. I continue to lead two great projects at Johns Hopkins University in Washington, DC where I serve as a Faculty Lecturer.
