Internet for Everyone?
9/27/2013 7:00:00 PM
For most of us, we work, play,
and communicate daily from our
multiple devices, but there are
still billions of people who do not
have access to the Internet. Google
is filling the sky with balloons to
bring the Internet to rural and
remote areas, and Facebook has
launched its Internet Everywhere
initiative through Internet.org,
a global partnership between
technology leaders, nonprofits,
local communities, and experts
who are working together to bring
the Internet to the two-thirds of
the world’s population that doesn’t
have it. Internet.org’s focus will
be on these emerging markets, and
I’m okay with that as we will all
benefit if we are connected globally.
Just one request: don’t lose sight of
the emerging markets that have no
access right here in our own rural
and less fortunate neighborhoods.
–CIO Advisor Jon Castelhano
