(i.e. 1 internet year = 7 human years)

We all knew that in the late 1990s. In fact, I had a $200,000 grant to 
study that.

Now, with the Mobile Revolution joining the Internet Revolution, I am 
seeking $1M to see if an internet/mobile year is twice as fast = 14 human 

Yours in continuous connectivity,
