Even trying to give the most charitable interpretation of Internet.org, I don't see how to remove the serious conflict of interest with Facebook.

A great article, well worth the read.
I wrote, about a month ago, about Valve’s policy of allowing employees to transfer freely within the company, symbolized by placing wheels under the desk (thereby creating a physical marker of their superior corporate culture that makes traditional tech perks look like toys) and expecting employees to self-organize. I’ve taken to calling this seemingly radical notion open allocation– employees have free rein to work on projects as they choose, wi...
