Leapfrogging into the Future

One such conversation was with a doctor from Burma. He was intrigued by what this distributed infrastructure could mean for his work in Burma. We discussed how Burma is now the first “smartphone only” country in the world. I last went to Burma in 2007. They talked of making the decision to come to Burma instead of the United States, given the business potential they saw in Burma.

I have just started a new job with the Omidyar Network. When I looked at my inbox this morning, I had emails from six organizations I have advised/worked with over the past couple of years (including Astia and Techstars ) announcing their partnership with the White House’s Startup America initiative. And, lest I for a moment forgot that I am living the American dream, thanks to parents who left a life that they loved to give me an even better one, it was once again etched in my mind.
