I haven’t read the whole list, and probably won’t since Ashton Kutcher, Lady Gaga, Sarah Palin, and probably some other people on my plzSTFU list are on there. But someone I sort of know is on the list! Matt Berg is a part of the team that I am doing my dissertation work with, though we’ve only “met” by email so far. Matt works on the ChildCount+ project for Millennium Villages which is helping to reduce child mortality rates in sub-Saharan Africa by using mobile phones to regularly screen for malnutrition, monitor for illness, and provide immunization support to community health workers. They have a great video about the project on their website.
