Exclusives in this issue include "Encounters" with legendary big wave surfer, Jeff Clark, who describes – in his own words – the first time he surfed Mavericks. In "The Givers" The Private Journey recognizes one of the greatest visionaries of our time, Nicholas Negroponte, and his mission to connect kids to the future with his "One Laptop per Child" initiative.
