Thomas Friedman

Thomas Friedman is the three time Pulitzer prize winning foreign affairs columnist at the New York Times. He has a master's degree in Modern Middle East Studies from Oxford University (on a Marshall scholarship) and later, worked with the NYT covering different issues in the Middle East. His book 'From Beirut to Jeruselam' received the National Book Award and the Overseas Press Club award in 1989 and was on the NYT bestseller for nearly 12 months. Since then, he has covered among other issues - Washington politics and international economics mainly - for NYT.
He presented a documentary 'Does Europe Hate Us?' on PBS and also appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Dennis Miller show among a variety of others. His way of expressing the 'Flat World' theory is interesting - envisioning the world as moving from size
Medium(Ver 1.0) --> Small (Ver 2.0) --> Tiny (Ver 3.0), something he though about when he was sleeping!!
Here is an interesting link exploring his weaker side (supposedly!!)
