In spite of what you hear politically, you can find a myriad of stats showing the improvement of the quality of life across the world. I’m more of a technophile and believe that tech is largely the reason. From what I gather, half the world would disagree with that, and that’s ok. I operate from a glass half full and think technology is what you make it.
Further, what’s really impressive is that technology is generally open to all. That is, even at the lowest income level, people have the ability to express their opinions, do business easily, and market their products and services like never before. From Facebook to Instagram to blogging, writing and putting content out there is open and available.
You’re a consumer and someone with good (your own) ideas. So get online and engage. The only bad approach is not doing anything!
