St. Maarten SCYE2004 Photo Album Antigua Charter Yacht Meeting Photo Album
The mood was definitely upbeat on Thursday, October 28, as the 45th Annual
Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show commenced with the largest opening
day crowd in its history. The YV&C staff was on hand and spent most of their
time at Bahia Mar and Las Olas, touring the show's superyachts. We're happy
to report that the weather was sunny and beautiful, the brokers were
optimistic, the crews were as gracious as ever, and the yachts were crowded
with prospective clients for both sale and charter. It was a great
opportunity to exchange ideas with so many of you. Following is our Fort
Lauderdale Photo Album with some highlights from this year's show.
Enjoy - and here's to a great season!

Poor Leonardo. After losing out to Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni
during his lifetime, he still doesn't get the credit or recognition his work
deserves. Finally, someone trusted their intuition, and bought a sketch which
looked to him like a Leonardo, and, lo - it was! His $19000 investment is now
worth $150 million:
Now that's what I call reverse innovation!
If you'll excuse me, I'm off to the basement to see if I have any Da Vinci's
lying around in my art collection...
His latest book, The Idea of Justice, is a serious re-examination of the
foundations of justice from a global perspective. He speaks of the two
definitions of justice in Sanskrit - niti (institutional justice) and nyaya
(realized justice) - and how we are too often misled by the utopian vision of
ideal justice, only to allow societal injustice all around us in our everyday
lives. For Sen, justice must alleviate suffering.
Here's his lecture to the folks at The Carnegie Council (video here):
AMARTYA SEN: It is always an absolute delight for me to be back here at the
Carnegie Council. I am very grateful to Joanne for being so kind and so
welcoming. It's very nice to meet some old friends, familiar faces, and some
new ones--Joel [Rosenthal] and other old friends, but a lot of new ones too.
I am very grateful.

There’s been a lot of noise lately about a company called Klout, which
recently rounded up another $30 million in venture capital funding from
several big firms. Klout, for those who don’t know it, attempts to put a
single numerical value on your online influence across social-media sites
such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
This effort seems to piss off a lot of people, who detail numerous
shortcomings in a service that aspires to be the metric of choice for
companies trying to reach social-media “influencers,” in much the manner
that Google’s PageRank system helps people understand the reach and
reputation of websites.
The Klout complaints are many, even as the company rapidly signs thousands of
corporate partners who use its evaluations to dish out “Klout Perks,”
such as free entry to parties and events, early peeks at hot products and
more. The issues inclu... (more)
As any travel agent can tell you, one of the best ways to get a good deal is
to go in the off season. When you add sailing to the mix you’ll need to pay
special attention to the weather patterns, but the Caribbean’s friendly
temperatures generally mean you can sail all year long.

‘island time’, cruising from one place to the next at a... (more)
