    HAS THE SILICON VALLEY HYPE CYCLE RUN ITS COURSE?
    The social media boom, powered by the growth of mobile computing, is over. And while a glittering new technological age of artificial intelligence beckons, the current cycle seems bloated and fatigued. It’s no wonder venture capitalists are looking elsewhere

    ... Getting individual donors to pay for care does not help address the structural barriers that exclude many poor people from accessing health services. It does not incentivize poor communities to demand their governments fulfill their commitment to the World Health Organization to allocate 15% of their annual budgets to healthcare.

    Back in 2014, the FCC outlined the 3 simple rules for an open internet, these rules protected the internet from broadband providers, who control your network connectivity to services. Whether you’re playing Xbox, streaming Stranger Things, listening to Weezer on Spotify or shopping online, these rules make sure your content is delivered the same.

    • Transparency. Broadband
