A message to all members of GlobalRisk community

Dear GlobalRisk community member,
At the time of writing the GlobalRisk community has grown to over 500 registered members representing all continents and over the whole spectrum of the risk profession. We have CEOs, CROs, investors, leading academics, senior managers, analysts, quants, and entrepreneurs. By the way if you've got a frog for a picture, hurry up and replace it!
Our 500th member became Franz-Rudolf Brüggemann from Germany!

Issue highlights:

In the coming week I will be attending by invitation a working session at the House of Lords on Emerging Risks, and I will be reporting back about this session in the next edition.  
I placed a poll on the site (under the tab Poll) "What are the most important emerging risks across the corporate landscape". Please go forward and vote. The results of your vote will be published on the site.

Participation and discussions:

Last week we noticed that many people have started actively participating in discussions and sharing knowledge. Here are some examples:
Peter C Andersen added a news item “The perfect prosecutorial Storm”  - a former prosecutors view on how the enforcement seas got so rough and how to sail through them.
Johannes Joubert added his white paper on the recent released ISO31000 standard
Dan Solomon, Patrick N Cowan and John Wartman introduced themselves to the community by taking part in the Introduction thread below.
Everybody is encouraged to go ahead and use this thread to tell the members about yourself- who you are and what you do.  Have fun.
We have added some new interesting videos: “George Soros on economic theory at the INET Inaugural Conference”
and  "Economics 101 or Why we are in such a mess" by Peter Shiff
