Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Blog Action Day: The Conversation on Poverty

« Divide or Conquer | Main | What Happens When a Brand Dies »


Valeria, thank you for this timely, insightful post. The graphics are fascinating, seeing the world's distribution of info-tech availability. When I teach content for bloggers, I prompt people to ask themselves "What gift do I want to give the world?" The Internet is a magnanimous place and a naturally expansive tool. With a little guidance, I think we can move into a very different world through effective use of communication.
I think you're proof of that, and I applaud your very intelligent writing.

Thanks for the Twitter reminder on this one. How very important for us all to stop and think, and then move that thought into action.

All the best,

@Melissa - I know this is not a contest, your story was so moving! Thank you for reading and for reaching out. I am glad to have met you, virtually.

@Lewis - growing up quasi poor has trained me not to forget. This was a worthy topic and initiative.
