Actually, I would love to attend CSUN's 25th Annual International Technology & Persons with
Disabilities Conference! There is nothing like it anywhere in the world when it comes to technology and disability. There are always new products, projects, and contacts to make it worthwhile. And it is only a short flight from hoe for me.
But I am not going this year because I have the privilege of working with Benetech.
Benetech specializes in using technology to address unmet social needs using a model similar to a technology startup - grounded in their Return on Humanity business model:
Together with partners and supporters worldwide, we use technology innovation and business expertise to solve unmet social needs. Leveraging the intellectual capital and resources of Silicon Valley, we create solutions that are truly life-changing. Our global endeavors have been instrumental in improving literacy, human rights and landmine detection. With expanded support, we can accomplish much more.
