April Update: Message from Mei Lin 

Dear Internauts,

The past month has been one of exploration. We’ve been dissecting each layer of the digital divide in our community discussions and highlighting the value of connecting our data, to remove barriers to knowledge.

In this month’s newsletter, Lin Wells introduces How Light is Spent, a report built around the future of technology, human ability and economic value. 

We celebrate our relationship with Kartik Kulkarni and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), who are working to amplify the impact of various social projects worldwide.

Our latest community call looks to solutions for connecting underserved communities, addressing the difficult policy and technology choices.

We look ahead to our session with Matthew Bishop on April 11th, who will dive into the big data challenges and opportunities around measuring progress.

And finally, The Nobel Prize Summit on April 26th invites us all to ask ‘What can be achieved in this decade to put the world on a path to a more sustainable, more prosperous future for all of humanity?’

Co-Founder and Chair
