  1. Dear Sean,
    Thanks for this insightful article on the digital divide.

    I represent a team of students and staff that recently were awarded first prize in the Microsoft/Open Data Institute’s XPRIZE challenge aimed at addressing access to broadband issues. We want to donate the prize money to the ‘right’ non-profit and/or school system that can best leverage it for closing the broadband gap.

    I’ve been trying in vain to get someone from the Microsoft Airband team or Philanthropy unit to talk with us about a potential case study project. They have their contact info buttoned-down tightly.

    Any chance you have a contact that you can share? Thanks again for your writing, and your time.

    Cheers, Brent T. Ladd (Purdue University)

    ps. I lived for a year near Ashland, WI, and was a patron of the library in your article.
