Picking Up From Where We Left Off...

Continuing, at last, from where we left off
. Having wrestled with my thoughts from Malawi from a few years back, some still make sense. Those ideas form the foundation for the discussion on this blog:
- Development is best defined as an increase in the amount of time that a person can foreseeably sustain their life into the future (See Pondering Poverty)
- Poverty is best defined as "a lacking of sustainability" (See Pondering Poverty)
- "I have come to believe more than ever in engineering, pure and empathetic put-me-in-your-shoes engineering, as one of the most effective strategies for realizing development." (see Digital Development)
