Textng across the steppes...

I happened to meet this guy today at a wedding reception - he's doing a software project for this European mobile phone provider - they are coming up with ways to transmit useful information to the herder nomads across the Mongolian steppes, and allow them to collaborate across distances using the mobile phone, making their lives easier, safer - since many of these herders have started using mobiles.

Here I am, reading a biography of Genghis Khan on one side, and then I hear this.

Wow. My brain wobbles on its heels. There is so much progress quietly happening, while the bad news continues to make headlines more often.

I don't know what makes your day, but this does, for me.
