Plot / Description
"Every one of us. #ConnectTheWorld"
This ad for the Internet.org initiative by Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg starts by showing various people in other countries with John F. Kennedy (JFK) narrating one of his speeches in the background.
Internet.org is a global partnership between technology leaders, nonprofits, local communities and experts who are working together to bring the internet to the two thirds of the world’s population that doesn’t have it. Sharing tools, resources and best practices, Internet.org partners will explore solutions in three major opportunity areas: affordability, efficiency, and business models.
I am not referring to the absolute, infinite concept of universal peace and goodwill of which some fantasies and fanatics dream. Let us focus instead on a more practical, more attainable peace. This will require a new effort, a new context for world discussions. It will require increased understanding, and increased understanding will require increased contact. So let us not be blind to our differences, but let us also direct our attention to our common interests. Our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's futures. And we are all mortal.
Today, the internet isn't accessible for two thirds of the world.
Imagine a world were it connects us all.
