      I agree it was a charged telling of story of fund raising. I am based out of the Silicon Valley, so I am very familiar with the recent tech millionaire flaunting their wealth. But I guess I felt that the article underplayed the aspects of Charity: Water unique like its brand building. i also felt it over played the staged aspect of the trip, it was staged to some extent. However, as someone who has lived in Namibia, I understand the logistical hurdles involved to bring 40+ techies into the wilderness. I am still a huge fan of Charity:Water in the end. Great read though.
