Honey Bee ~ Anil Gupta on Grassroots Innovators

It was wonderful to see IIM Professor Anil K Gupta speaking today at the MIT Media Lab on the theme of Grassroots Innovation and how he and colleagues are empowering such innovators and spreading their ideas via the Honey Bee Network! I first met Dr Gupta back in the Development by Design conference in 2001 organized by Nitin Sawhney and colleagues at the Media Lab. The Honey Bee Network just continues to grow and is increasingly becoming mobiles-powered, thus engaging some of the 80-100 Million new phone users per year in India alone!
