QuestionWhat moves you? nyork
Bill Joy: What moves me is the opportunity to work with people who have passion, want to make change and positive contribution in the world. And I have a job now where I’m working with innovators trying to attack the problems, environmental problems in the world with green technology. And so every day I have the great pleasure of meeting people who are excited and passionate about their new ideas. Not all the new ideas are right. People can get passionate about things and be confused about them. But we meet an enormous number of people who have almost unbounded passion that they can go and attack one of these problems. They can go attack the problem of CO2 in the world. They can go attack the problem of water, not having enough clean water. They can find new ways of getting solar energy, wind energy, geothermal energy. And to get a chance to meet and work with people who have this kind of great and almost unbounded passion to go and make the world a better place is a pleasure for me every day of my life.
