Great subject for an article… But after expecting to be inspired by several examples of this kind of ingenuity I was very disappointed that the author only provided one. So the article became mostly about MacGyver and his attributes -- intimating that those in developing countries might share those attributes.
The author says "In these places, the landscape is littered with broad meaty challenges like the lack of energy access, cross-cultural barriers, and the digital divide. They’re addressing these challenges in new ways and new models that are poised to leapfrog anything we can imagine in Silicon Valley."
If so, how about some examples?
Thanks for the pop culture reference, but a little more "meaty" research would have served this article -- and its readers -- well.
