    • Creating Change in a Digital World
    • I have an agenda
    • I want you to believe we canbuild organizations based on
    • Abundance
    • That’s not our model today
    • (and it’s understandable)
    • We exist in the space
    • Where needs cannot be met through traditional means
    • Where business or government services don’t exist or are inaccessible
    • (that’s why we are “not” onething or “non” something else)
    • But I want you to leave todaybelieving something different
    • Abundance
    • I believe it
    • I work for an organization
    • That started with this:
    • Journalists threw away review copies of software
    • We took those copies and we gave them away
    • Now, we have direct impact in over 70 countries
    • To date, we’ve given away more than $2.5 billion worth of technology
    • And we’ve connected people to resources that help them optimize that technology
    • And I’ve seen other examples of abundance
    • I believe we can build a sector on abundance
    • I believe you can build anorganization on abundance
    • How?
    • 1. Open data
    • 2. Ability to congregate
    • 3. You
    • Search
    • Follow
    • Connect
    • Share
    • What would happen if
