Quinn argues that providing Internet connectivity to the developing world enables you to “teach a man to fish” on a larger scale, which is another way of getting at what I was trying to get at in my previous post. At work every day, I use the Internet to provide the answers to problems I’m having. Isn’t it kind of foolish to think that people in much more dire circumstances wouldn’t be able to do the very same thing? We don’t have enough doctors to send one to every single village in the world. Imagine if people in those villages could go online and at least ask qualified medical professionals questions about the medical problems they face. That’s better than nothing, isn’t it?
