On one hand, we have access to the most cutting-edge technologies, but on the other hand, we are working on ways to improve and deliver this technology to people who might not have the same access – people with disabilities, or in rural parts of the world, or lower-income families and schools, and so on. I'm always mindful that even in our own neighborhoods there are children and adults who simply don't have access to what we might consider necessities in our own lives, including cell phones, email, and the Internet. I've been that low-income child, and I've been that single mother who had to pick between hot water and the wonderful world of the web."
