Dr. Peter Diamandis is chairman and founder of Singularity University.
Over the past 20 years, wireless technologies and the Internet have become ubiquitous, affordable, and available to almost everyone. Africa has skipped a technological generation, bypassing the landlines that stripe our Western skies for the wireless way. Today, a Maasai warrior with a cellphone has better telecom capabilities than the president of the United States did 25 years ago. And, if he’s a Maasai warrior on a smartphone with access to Google, then he has access to more information than the president did just 15 years ago. By the end of 2013, more than 70 percent of humanity will have access to instantaneous, low-cost communications and information. In other words, we are now living in a world of information and communication abundance. For the first time ever, the world’s “Rising Billion” will have their voices heard, becoming both a producing and consuming segment of humanity.
