While it took a weekend of Fox News promos and a 15-minute interview to make last week’s Clinton Global Initiative a distant memory, we did enjoy this recollection by an attendee:

Google co-founder Sergey Brin is approaching utter rock star status at CGI. He was the one approached by everyone from Colin Powell to the Costa Rican leader — who interruped an interview with Brin to shake his hand and say “Keep it up!” “My man, how you doing!” Powell exclaimed. We had asked Brin his feeings that African children often, when logging onto the Internet, experience Google as the first contact. He said we should worry first about them having electricity, and not so much about whether they’re on Google.
