Sometimes, I just have to stop and praise the sweet heavens above that I was born during this particular time in history.
The Internet continues to be something I’m deeply grateful for.

My friend Peter Diamandis, author of the fantastic book Abundance writes,
“Right now, a Masai warrior on a mobile phone in the middle of Kenya has better mobile communications than the president did 25 years ago. If he’s on a smart phone using Google, he has access to more information than the U.S. president did just 15 years ago. If present growth rates continue, by the end of 2013, more than 70% of humanity will have access to instantaneous, low-cost communications and information.”
