#TechForGood: Show How You Use Technology for Social Good
July 10, 2014
"Technology is nothing. What's important is that you have a faith in people, that they're basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they'll do wonderful things with them." ~ Steve Jobs
If we are to listen to Jobs, technology is just the medium -- what matters most is what you do with it. Sure, you can use cool gadgets to track fitness, keep up with friends and discover an infinite amount of things. But how are you using technology to better the lives of others? How is your product or organization leveraging technology for social good? Or have an idea for how technology can help better the world?
Join our #TechForGood campaign and share how you or your organization is using technology to bring social change and help others.
