The Students for a Smarter Planet initiative was based on students using technology to make the world a better place through their practical projects. The Initiative facilitated these projects with funding, mentoring and other support. Wendy Murphy was your host, guide, coach and your connection to other IBMers.
Building a Smarter Planet is a blog intended to provide readers with thought-provoking content and a place to talk about the issues raised within the content. It is our hope that you will feel compelled to share some of the things you see, read and hear on this blog with your friends, family and peers. We feel strongly that this blog is not going to deliver final answers to the issues raised, but that it will represent a starting point for conversation around the issues.
