So-so proud of my friend Tilek who is helping to make this and other things like this happen!
 
This is one of the many ways next billion people will come online.

"Dozens of "Info Ladies" bike into remote Bangladeshi villages with laptops and internet connections, helping tens of thousands of people - especially women - get everything from government services to chats with distant loved ones. "

...

"They sit with teenage girls where they talk about primary health care and taboo subjects like menstrual hygiene, contraception and HIV. They help villagers seeking government services write complaints to authorities under the country's newly-enacted Right to Information Act.

They talk to farmers about the correct use of fertilizer and insecticides. For 12 cents they help students fill college application forms online. They're even trained to test blood pressure and blood sugar levels."
