Mark Zuckerberg wants to change the Internet and in an interview with Wired published Monday, the Facebook founder talked about his latest project, Internet.org. It is a non profit with a mission to bring Internet access to everyone on the planet.
He's got some notable partners already, like Nokia, Samsung and Qualcomm. The goal will definitely be achieved, but its hard to say if he'll be able to do it anytime soon.
Zuckerberg envisions a set of services, including "messages, Wikipedia, search engines, social networks, weather access and commodities prices," that should be readily available to everyone, much like the dial tone you got when you still owned a landline.
Zuckerberg's "dial tone" is a small part of a much larger goal he hopes to achieve.
"The story of the next century is the transition from an industrial, resource-based economy, to a knowledge economy," Zuckerberg said. "You solve that by getting everyone online."
