The Chronicle of Philanthropy reported that the Ford Foundation, which hosted a day long conference called “Wired for Change” to discuss Internet freedom and social change, is working hard “to sell the philanthropy world on the idea that the Internet is not just an accessory to help push social change but also an integral part of enacting that change.” (See full story, Ford Foundation Conference Sheds Light on Internet Freedom.)

Significant quote:

“We use the Internet and mobile technology to build society, and we take it for granted that the open Internet will always be in place,” said Brett Solomon, who runs Access, an organization that helps those in countries who are subject to censorship maintain Internet access.

The article is a good read. 🙂
