Deval Patrick: Just Words Speech 10/15/06 Boston Common

I will not engage in the politics of fear. Because fear is poisonous. All through history it has been used to hold back progress and limit fairness. Only hope defeats fear. It always has. At a candidates forum last week, the moderator asked each of us to say something nice about the other candidates. Kerry Healey rather grudgingly said, Well, he can give a good speech. She would know this not because she has ever attended a speech of mine but because she has them filmed by this fine fellow here. But her dismissive point, and I hear it from her staff, is that all I have to offer is words.

Just words.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. Just words. We have nothing to fear but fear itself.

Just words.

Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.

Just words.

I have a dream.

Just words.

Let me say it before you do: I am no Dr. King, no President Kennedy, no FDR, no Thomas Jefferson. But I do know that the right words, spoken from the heart with conviction, with a vision of a better place and a faith in the unseen, are a call to action.

N93 Video: Claude and Millie in Boston

Claude from Blogging in Paris came to visit Millie from My Mom's Blog. They met at South Station in Boston and had lunch at Les Zygomates. Carol and Steve met them afterwords. It's really great how blogging can bring people together.

Video: Nokia N95 Product Rollout NYC

I attended the Nokia N95 product rollout in NYC and here are some moments i captured from the show floor. The main thing I learned is that Nokia is open. Open to developers and open to the future of mobile computing.

Disclosure: Nokia provided the N93 cell phone to me, that this video was shot on, and paid my travel expenses to NYC. Nokia did not require me to write about the N93. All the opinions expressed here are mine alone and those of the people that I interviewed.
