MOBILE BRINGS THE NEXT BILLION PEOPLE ONLINE

NBN: Give and Profit from nextlab on Vimeo.



A smart initiative out of MIT to connect the world's poor to the digital economy. Mobile is the key. I've heard of some great innovations coming out of this space, such as sms-based mobile banking in Kenya, which was a world first. Worth watching, and seeing how adding another billion people to the digital economy changes not just their economy, but the whole economy.
