I was quoted in a Washington Post article on Monday. The piece discusses a fascinating project by the One Economy Corporation that has managed to get people in low-income communities connected to the Internet. [Reading the article requires a login.

For example, they have developed a helpful portal for their users with information about jobs, government services and lots of other material that is likely of interest to users.
