This Blog is the journey of fulfilling a dream of reaching at least a third of the world’s population through technology, innovation and creativity and leaving a positive impact in the lives of those reached. Although this journey started over 6 years ago, I’ve now made it a lifetime purpose to pursue this will all my heart, skills and passion and dream of the day of reaching that goal of 2 Billion people through activities that I am involved in. You can expect updates from my journey and I will share what are new in the world of technology and innovation that can be used to make this dream a reality. There will still be a strong focus on using technology for community empowerment as I believe this is vital to support the global change agents who will make this dream a reality.
