Times have changed

I wonder if because I live in the times, that I have trouble seeing all that has occurred in the last 5, 10, 20 years.  The world has truly changed.  Information is becoming so prolific the world over.  I stand in utter amazement of this.   The internet, and social media, has removed so many barriers to information. 

Yes, the digital divide is real and needs to be dealt with, but just to think that so many people in the world had no access to an encyclopedia or other information resources and now they do.  I am learning to see information as a true resource, like clean water or food.  It is here that my mission lies.  I want to ensure that these resources get into the hands of everyone.  Information poverty is real and cyclical like other forms of poverty.  Lets change that.  Lets bring information to the people.
