"Nobody expects greed to be eliminated from human nature. That's why regulation exists."
-- Arianna Huffington at Radio City Music Hall in New York on Tuesday night. CNN's Anderson Cooper hosted Huffington, Mike Huckabee and D.L. Hughley in a conversation about Free Speech and the Power of the Press.

Sarah Palin changed the game for women and power, and it'll never be the same again. So say a few well-known women -- Arianna Huffington, former vice presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro, White House Project president Marie Wilson, and More magazine editor in chief Lesley Jane Seymour -- who met in New York this morning for "The Spin Room: Gender, Politics and Media in the 2008 Election." The lively panel was MOREPatricia Sellers - Nov 13, 2008 1:44 PM ET
I've shared pictures and videos and stories of Warren Buffett in action at the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit--his idea of "heaven," he told the 350 women who gathered in California in early October. But there was much ado beyond Buffett at our 10th Summit, which drew, despite the market mayhem, a lineup of leaders that reflected our theme, "Extraordinary Talent." Here are a few glimpses of the talent on MOREPatricia Sellers - Oct 28, 2008 3:05 PM ET
This morning, I read about the potential merger of General Motors (GM) and Chrysler. Then I read about the benign rivalry of two divas of the blog world, Arianna Huffington and Tina Brown. Two stories that have nothing to do with each other? You would think. But actually, they do. They point to a new reality of the business world: Competition isn't what it used to be. Competition becomes coopetition. MOREPatricia Sellers - Oct 27, 2008 5:14 PM ET
Amidst the chaos in the markets, it's difficult to find time to breathe, much less pore over 2,500 pictures from our Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit in early October. But I finally made it through our trove and want to share part of it with you.
If you've been reading Postcards, you know that we had Warren Buffett with us for three days. What a treat. More than that, the Berkshire MOREJessica Shambora, Writer-Reporter - Oct 24, 2008 3:11 PM ET
"Be the change you want to see in the world."
Blake Mycoskie, founder and Chief Shoe Giver of TOMS Shoes, says that this Mahatma Ghandi quote is his favorite--and he even sells shoes that display those words. I met Mycoskie last evening at Arianna Huffington's house in Los Angeles, and he so impressed me that I visited him this afternoon at TOMS headquarters in Santa Monica. Fascinating business: For every pair of MOREPatricia Sellers - Oct 11, 2008 1:48 AM ET

Featuring Warren Buffett and beyond, there's a wealth, so to speak, of video from last week's Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit. Especially now, with the markets in turmoil, these video segments are worth checking out. There's Buffett on the $700 billion bailout. Buffett on why he expects to make a hefty profit on his recent $3 billion investment in General Electric (GE), and Buffett on gender equality (wise and amusing MOREPatricia Sellers - Oct 6, 2008 2:11 PM ET
Greetings from the pinnacle! As I launch this blog, Postcards, I'm perched on the 15th floor of the Time & Life Building in the center of Manhattan -- overlooking Rockefeller Center, to be precise. I have a sense, though, that I'm scanning the entire universe -- wanting to share with you the most fascinating, most fun, and most valuable ideas about super-achievers and other powerful people.
I have lots of ideas MOREPatricia Sellers - Jul 10, 2008 8:20 PM ET
I'm often asked about the secrets of building a successful business and what lessons I have learned about overcoming obstacles.
For me, the biggest lesson is the importance of not letting my critics stop me from following my dreams. The most freeing thing about getting older is realizing how little power the naysayers have over us -- unless we give it to them.
A perfect example came when we first launched the MOREPatricia Sellers - Jun 12, 2008 2:18 PM ET
