Technology for the Sake of Humanity
By Kristy Barkan

Technology, as it turns out, is more than just a tool to advance our understanding and simplify our daily lives. It is a gift, waiting to be given. It can mean the difference between isolation and inclusion. It can move the human heart from desolation to joy. For the recipients of such a gift, the world is forever shifted.
