  1. I have nothing but respect for Ms. Lacy. When writing her book about emerging country entrepreneurs, she visited India to learn more about a solar powered telecom company that was bringing GSM and high speed broadband at a cost where telecom operators could still make a profit on $3/mo per user. She was sick, yet still traveled with me to remote villages in Rajasthan, where she met with village leaders and saw how the tech was changing the lives of rural families in a poor, under served part of India with little to no electricity. This was not to get in with the local VC and cozying up to angel money, but reporting on tech around the world that can change our world. I respect her for doing this. She changed lives by reporting these stories. Give her credit where it’s due.
