Thanks for visiting my website devoted to investigating how technology is affecting poverty around the world. My name is Jack J. Barry and I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Connecticut’s Global Training and Development Institute. I recently defended my dissertation, and my degree was in Political Science at the University of Connecticut. This site is dedicated to providing a space where those who are interested in the technology/poverty relationship can read about and share innovative ideas, or engage in debate. To participate please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with articles that are central to the theme, leave comments, or just browse. Thanks for being interested in the increasingly important topic of how technology is influencing the economic opportunities, and the lives of the poor around the world.
