Casting a Wider Net (19 May 2004)
What we need to do is to put enough advocates in these countries who can work with all sectors of civil society, who can work with government, who can educate, advocate and in effect help these governments understand that they themselves by changing those policies are the key to being able to spread the Internet and make it work effectively for their country. So I'd put a lot of money into that. I'm trying to raise money for that now. This is a very important area, and if we can convince governments to get on board, then I think we can enormously accelerate the growth and use and exploitation of the Internet for good purposes in the world.
