At WiderNet, he combines this with his long-term interest in international development. His first visit to Africa was with a medical team in 1982, and he continues to teach and promote appropriate water well drilling technology through the U.S. non–profit organization Wellspring Africa. “I want to see the day when African technicians – so steeped in understanding of ICT technology – bend and twist these tools to create appropriate and affordable communications systems for the most rural villages in Africa.”
