While John’s other entrepreneurial endeavor,

him quite busy, remarkably enough he also finds time to contribute
to the intellectual development
of FLOW, of which he is also co-founder. He is a serious student
of ideas and a passionate entrepreneur of meaning, forging new

It is very rare to have the CEO of a Fortune

to make the world a better place. We are most grateful for and
excited by his contributions. John's
blog at the Whole Foods' web site is rich with content
and dialog. Well worth exploring.
