Answering Steve Jobs' Question About What We Do: Using Technology For Empowerment

From beginning users to seasoned veterans of various social networking sites, gadgets and strategies, innovation is key. Not just in the creation of tools such as Twitter but in how users take a created idea and add value by using it unforseen ways.

The ways we use technology for elevation of self (encompassing gender, race or ethnic concerns) in increasing basic skill sets to communities in maintaining a nation's competitive edge on a global scale will further our value in the world.
