We begin! Welcome. We’re so excited to begin and have you join.

The X PRIZE Foundation wants to build a prize that will address the most pressing needs of the poor in the developing world. It’s a hard, hard problem that we’re trying to tackle. But we believe that there is a way, and with your feedback and involvement, we’re sure it will happen.
This blog is all about dialogue. Every week, we’ll tell you about what we’re thinking, reading, listening to, and doing. And you can tell us what’s going on from your end. Send us your ideas, your thoughts, your videos, your comments. We’re here to learn.
Just one big ground rule. If you want to criticize, make it constructive.
