In September 2014 British actor and Goodwill Ambassador for UN Women, Emma Watson, gave a smart, important, and moving speech about gender inequality and how to fight it.

She wanted to get at least a minute of film on each teacher to be rated, play the tapes without sound for outside observers, and then have those observers rate the effectiveness of the teachers by their expressions and physical cues. She could only get 10 seconds worth of tape and thought she would have to abandon the project.

Which is why "The 100 Thing Challenge" arrived in my mailbox. The publishers will no doubt not like the next statement: If you're already familiar with the challenge, other than some insightful comments on our consumer motivations which Bruno makes (and which I'll get to in a moment) there's not much new here that you haven't read online already.
