Kenya Callback

This past week I shot the keynote speeches at Build 2017, Microsoft’s huge developer conference, which this year was held at the Washington State Convention Center here in Seattle.  On the giant screens in the cavernous event space, I noticed a favorite photo I shot in Kenya being used to inform attendees of Microsoft’s work to extend internet accessibility to far-flung corners of the globe.  It’s an amazing and transformative effort, and I’ll always consider myself fortunate for having the opportunity to witness it firsthand and help tell the story.  If you’d like to learn about Microsoft’s use of TV White Spaces to deliver the internet to rural areas of the world, check out one of the links below.  You can also head to my website and have a look at the Kenya page, which has a bunch more images and a bit of explanation as well.  Thanks for reading!
