@readywriting @pankisseskafka This cannot continue. I've been living this near-poverty nightmare for 10 years - even w/a full-time position.

@PredictSwan Seems to me the distribution strings are in place. Indian diaspora is just one.. perhaps multilingual like Ghandi...

@PredictSwan So the non profit piece is already in place. I think I read Indian diaspora can easily invest in Indian businesses. True?

The U.S. is falling dangerously behind in offering high-speed, affordable broadband

In terms of Internet speed and cost, “ours seems completely out of whack with what we see in the rest of the world,” said Susan Crawford, a law professor at Yeshiva University in Manhattan, a former Obama administration technology adviser and a leading critic of American broadband.
The World Economic Forum ranked the United States 35th out of 148 countries in Internet bandwidth, a measure of available capacity in a country. Other studies rank the United States anywhere from 14th to 31st in average connection speed.
Generally, fast broadband is considered anything above 10 megabits a second.
In Riga, speeds average 42 megabits a second, but many users had service of 100 to 500 megabits as of mid-December, according to Ookla. In San Antonio, broadband speeds average about 16 megabits a second. While higher speeds are available through cable television or phone companies, the expense is such that many households in the city cannot afford a connection.

@realsaramerica@ParentsUnitedPA Love Helen's answer to the stupid question at the end. I HATE that false paradigm!” Best ever, right??

It's a scale-able answer easily reproducible that demos my college and career ready vocabulary skills.
