We aspire to belong to a fair, knowledge driven society enabled by our mobile, mapping and monitoring tools
Societies are different – some are driven by natural resources and human labour – others by capital (which I’m told is accumulated human effort) – and others by knowledge. Of all these factors, knowledge is the least difficult to acquire and appropriate for wellbeing in todays world. The people that occupy the commanding heights of our society seem least interested in a knowledge based society – the thrill of land and capital still has them as thralls. Someone has to create the opportunities that knowledge will exploit. That is our mission.
In this age of globalization, it is important to appreciate that knowledge is no panacea – it can accelerate the widening of inequality. That is why we want the opportunities that we create in the end to result in a fair, knowledge driven society.
