The session is being immoderated by Robert Frank, currently the VP of Strategy and Business Development at Banana Republic and CompuMentor Board Chair.
A bit about our speakers:
David Lehr, from Project Market Light at Stanford's Digital Vision Program, works with rural farmers in developing markets to deliver information on-demand, directly to cell phones. Eric Sundelof is from the Reuters Foundation and inthefieldONLINE.net, a cellphone platform for in-the-field reporting solutions for especially emerging markets.
Given the focus on non-profits, it makes sense that netsquared would include education into within the topics covered by the event, but I had hopes that it could be fully realized theme. Perhaps next year at "netcubed"...although it is refreshing that the themes focus on impact in the general sense - but maybe this is for the best. Education (and by extension, educators) tend to want to separate ourselves from other industries and "real world" applications, when we really should be thinking about how to integrate, which is precisely what netsquared has done.
