Technology: The Future of Technology

Mark Zuckerberg, the founder and chief executive of Facebook, recently authored a popular article on what the direction of the Internet should be. He envisions a future where the Internet is available to all, not only in America, but also in developing countries. Currently in America, the cost of purchasing data for two years on a cell phone is two to three times the cost of an iPhone alone; spreading smartphones around the world doesn’t necessarily spread the Internet. Zuckerberg, along with other tech leaders, helped create Internet.org, a global partnership that aims to spread access to the Internet. A recent study from Deloitte showed that expanding the Internet’s infrastructure to developing countries would create 140 million jobs and life 160 million people out of poverty.
