The moment of redemption came when we were asked to forecast where technology would be in five years for nonprofits and the countries in which we work. I said three things that echoed my remarks at the Microsoft panel earlier in the week:
- We will likely get it wrong; we therefore need more humility;
- “good-enough” mobile phones will likely be the dominant technology platform; and
- innovations will likely come from emerging countries in a way that will drive innovation in the west, turning the development path upside down.
