Mashable Tech posted an interesting article today regarding tech innovations that may change/help the developing world.  According to the article, there is a movement to bring technology within the grasp of the middle and lower classes of developing countries, many of whom have not had access before now.  It will be interesting to see in the coming months and years the positive things that access to technology will do for people—especially the technologies that provide clean energy, clean water and other human necessities.  People don’t NEED e-readers, mp3 players, video games and etc. but they do need clean water and breathable air.
