Good connectivity across regions, according to Parag Khanna.

Love the innovation and this story. While others were mocking txting as a ridiculous innovation for the young, Bright Simons recognized the collision of a trend and a challenge in the world.

Now think about a current innovation or technology and ask the question how might this innovation evolve or what challenges might this innovation address!
