When President Obama dined with the Silicon Valley billionaires in Feb 2011, the New York Times and Bloomberg News noted that the dinner was a celebration of some deal he had made with the Silicon Valley Confederacy. They reported that the U.S. $3 trillion budget he would send to Congress Feb 14 2011, would include $307 billion in grants to Silicon Valley. “That’s awfully high”, I thought. “Obama’s giving ten percent of his budget to Silicon Valley companies for research and development, computer training and supplies?! What’s going on here?”
After two years of looking and waiting, here is the very bad news of what our government has done behind the scenes. Most of the $307 billion went to and is going to Silicon Valley to build the “African Internet” in Nairobi, Kenya. Eric Schmidt, head of Google, seems to be leading the pack. He now calls Nairobi, “The Silicon Valley of Africa”.
On Feb 1st 2013, when Hillary Clinton ended her Secretary of State job. Bloomberg’s headline said, “Hillary Clinton Helps Silicon Valley On Her Way Out The Door”. That’s it folks. What can we do about it?
Sincerely, George W. Hunt
Pt. 1 – The African Internet, Silicon Valley and “The Alliance For An Affordable Internet” – George Hunt presents his findings on what the governments 307 billion dollars in grants to the Silicon valley are going to. In this investigation he uncovers the results almost 2 years after the original grants were proposed and we learn that a lot of that money is going in to build an internet pipeline in Africa and bringing African people online. George asks the looming question of why would we want to invest 10 percent of the US budget into Africa.
Pt. 2 – Jann Scott interviews George W. Hunt on the new video The African Internet, Silicon Valley and The Alliance for an affordable internet and they dig deeper into the issue of why America would want to spend so much money investing in African internet and providing the continent with more affordable technology resources when the returns on the initial work are so very small in comparison.
