We can make planet-wide, always-on, high-speed(ish) Internet communications a reality for everyone. In other words, a universal Internet is possible, say Alan Davidson, New America's Vice President for Technology Policy and Strategy and Director of the Open Technology Institute (OTI), and Danielle Kehl, a policy analyst with OTI, in “Build an Internet for Everyone, Everywhere,” their piece in New America's Big Ideas series on CNN, published today. According to Davidson and Kehl, now that the goal of internet everywhere for everyone is on the horizon, global and local participation and investment are the keys to getting to that finish line.

You can hear Davidson and Kehl in conversation with Anne-Marie Slaughter here, and you can catch up on the entire series of Big Ideas here.
