Technology for Society — From WEF

I’m just back from Davos, the 40th World Economic Forum. Though my work was always behind the scenes, I met stimulating people and enjoyed many stimulating thoughts.

What’s nice is that WEF posts most of the sessions on the web.

Please share with me, thanks to technology, the session “Technology for Society” (29 Jan, 2010):

Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google; Google makes available technologies that allow us to help others –> YK: True! All of its services, i.e. mails, maps, etc. are tools for social networking, knowledge transfer and more.

At the aftermath of an  earthquake in Haiti, Google flew a low altitude airplane and took aerial photos as precisely as possible to help the rescue teams on the ground.

Please find discussion of Google and the CEO of Ushahidi, Google on China and  more –> Technology for Society, 28 Jan. 2010
