Going the last mile: The power of affordable Internet access

Fisherfolk at work on the island of Bohol in the Philippines. Over the last 50 years, Bohol has lost 90 percent of its fish.

Fisherfolk at work on the island of Bohol in the Philippines. Over the last 50 years, Bohol has lost 90 percent of its fish.

Spanning 97 miles, Danajon Bank in the Philippines is a rare marine life wonder. Just one of six double barrier reefs in the world, it is home to coral reefs, mangroves, seagrass biomes, tiger-tail seahorses and other natural wonders. But if you visited the reef in recent years, you would be struck by the absence of one vital creature – fish. One island, Bohol, has lost 90 percent of its fish. Overfishing, population growth and ineffective protection and management of coastal resources are all to blame.

Danajon Bank is a story of so many monumental challenges. With a depleting food supply, how will people get enough to eat? With a profession under threat, how will people make a living? With marine biodiversity in peril, how do we sustain a precious ecosystem?

Part of the answer begins with bringing Danajon Bank into the digital world, empowering fisherfolk with information and enabling the government to better communicate with its citizens.

For the first time, there is now technology that can affordably and effectively extend broadband connectivity to these kinds of communities. In particular, new commercially available wireless broadband technologies are available that can dynamically utilize unassigned or otherwise unused television broadcast frequencies. We call these unused frequencies “TV white spaces.” They can be repurposed to provide affordable, robust Internet access to communities like Bohol where connectivity is otherwise out of reach.

Microsoft, along with partners U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Filipino government, are piloting TV white spaces technology in Bohol to help register fisherfolk. Today more than 16,000 fisherfolk have registered with nearly 4,000 through repurposing TV white spaces.

Microsoft, along with partners U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Filipino government, are piloting TV white spaces technology in Bohol to help register fisherfolk. Today more than 16,000 fisherfolk have registered with nearly 4,000 exclusively through repurposing TV white spaces.

For the last two years, Microsoft piloted TV white spaces technologies in Bohol through a partnership with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and two Filipino government agencies, the Department of Science and Technology and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources. This project was the first time TV white space technology had been used in the Philippines to extend high-speed, wireless Internet access to remote parts of the country.

With Internet access in Bohol, USAID was able to formally register fisherfolk, the first step in creating a plan for sustainable fisheries. It also enabled fisherfolk to register for health care, insurance, poverty assistance and other government services. Today more than 16,000 fisherfolk have registered with nearly 4,000 exclusively through repurposing TV white spaces. Government agencies are using the registration data to nourish sustainable fisheries, feed more people and create more jobs. As an added benefit, 20,000 Filipino citizens for the first time now have Internet access. Last month, the U.S. State Department recognized the project with its annual award for best public-private partnership.

I had the opportunity to share this story of digital inclusion last week at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) in Manila, the capital city nearly 700 miles north of Bohol. I’m a member of the APEC Business Advisory Council, a group of business leaders from 21 economies and one of the three American business leaders appointed by President Obama who advise APEC leaders on opportunities for continued regional growth. It’s an honor to serve alongside my fellow council members from Eli Lilly and Caterpillar. We meet throughout the year to discuss policy, trade and economic investment, and then annually with our counterparts from the APEC economies.

This year at APEC, the role of promoting the digital economy and connecting people through affordable, robust Internet access dominated many discussions. Of the 4 billion people globally without Internet access, half live in the Asia-Pacific region. In countries like the Philippines, with 100 million people spread out across more than 7,000 islands, connectivity is a real challenge. And yet the Philippines and indeed the entire region are making tremendous progress to bridge the digital divide. By the end of 2014, Asia-Pacific overtook North America as the largest regional e-commerce market.

Sharing the story of the Danajon Bank and Bohol with other business and policy leaders at APEC, I am reminded just how far we’ve come in a short period of time. Internet connectivity is for the first time becoming more affordable and available in many parts of the world, transforming local economies and livelihoods. It’s further amazing to me that many of the technologies to enable digital inclusiveness are available today – we don’t have to wait to have an impact.

That’s why Microsoft last week launched a new fund to cultivate companies with solutions that bring affordable Internet access to underserved markets. The fund is part of Microsoft’s Affordable Access Initiative that invests in new technologies, cloud-based services and applications, and business models that can help solve the issue of Internet access in local communities around the world. Eligible companies can apply through Jan. 15, 2016.

While the challenges of connectivity are significant, the possibilities have never been more real. This is particularly true when public and private institutions are able to combine their shared resources and learnings toward broader impact. Going the last mile requires all of us to work together to shape a better world.

Global Diversity & Inclusion update – Sharing our latest workforce numbers

Earlier today, we released our latest workforce demographic numbers on our Global Diversity & Inclusion website. I encourage anyone with an interest in diversity at Microsoft – as well as anyone interested in diversity within the tech industry as a whole – to visit this website and familiarize themselves with our latest information.

As I look at our numbers, I see a story that to some degree is being repeated throughout the industry. While certain leading indicators are trending up and we are starting to see signs of progress, systemic challenges remain when it comes to increasing the presence of women and minorities at all levels of the workforce. The implications are clear: we need to build on the areas where there is some early momentum, address areas where we’re not yet seeing real progress, and above all, remain focused on the importance of increasing diversity and building a more inclusive culture at Microsoft.

Here are some examples of what the data show:

Racial and ethnic minority representation:

  • In the U.S., Microsoft saw modest year-over-year increases in nearly all racial and ethnic categories, including African-American/Black, Asian, Hispanic/Latino(a), and Multi-Racial representation. In two areas, American Indian/Native American and Pacific Islander, our percentages were flat.

Leadership representation:

  • The percentage of women on our Senior Leadership Team is now at 27.2 percent, the highest it has ever been.
  • Our Board of Directors is more diverse than ever, with three female members out of 11 total (pending shareholder approval in December), compared to two of 10 a year ago.
  • Pending shareholder approval in December, women and ethnic minorities will hold five of our 11 board positions.
  • The number of African-American/Black corporate vice presidents more than doubled this year, increasing from 1.3 percent to 2.9 percent.
  • When combining African-American/Blacks with Hispanic/Latino(a) executives who have joined the ranks of corporate vice president, that year-over-year number increases from 4.5 percent to 6.4 percent.

Recruitment of women and minorities from universities:

  • Worldwide, 30.6 percent of all university hires coming into Microsoft are women, up from 27.7 percent the previous year. This is encouraging as we think about our future.
  • The number of women being hired into technical/engineering roles from universities worldwide has increased to 26.1 percent, up from 23.7 percent the previous year.
  • In the U.S., the percentage of African-American/Black hires from universities coming into technical roles increased to 3.3 percent compared to 2.5 percent the prior year.
  • In the U.S., the percentage of Hispanic/Latino(a) hires from universities coming into technical roles was 5.1 percent compared to 4.9 percent the previous year.
  • The number of female interns worldwide at Microsoft is also increasing steadily, up to 31.8 percent this year compared to 28.0 percent last year.

If current trends hold, we expect to see a continuation of growth in all these areas as we move through our fiscal year (which ends on June 30, 2016) and into the first quarter of FY17.

We believe this upward trajectory – particularly as it relates to university hires – is partially due to the investments we have made in the past several years though programs like DigiGirlz, TEALS and

Explore, as well as through partnerships with organizations like the National Center for Women in Information Technology on their Technolochicas and Aspirations in Computing programs.

It is also the result of greater awareness in general of the value and importance of diverse talent to the company as a key driver of innovation. To address what many refer to as “the pipeline problem,” we are focused on all stages of the pipeline. We and many of our peer companies are doing that, and we’re starting to see results – definitely not as quickly as we would like, but we’re starting to move in the right direction.

Overall percentage of women at Microsoft:

Despite these encouraging signs, we recognize that not everything is positive. One area of our workforce representation that bears a specific note is that this year – primarily due to the restructuring of our phone hardware business – we experienced an overall decline in the percentage of women working at Microsoft worldwide, from 29 percent (Sept. 30, 2014) to 26.8 percent (Sept. 30, 2015).

The workforce reductions resulting from the restructure of our phone hardware business (Sharpening Our Focus) impacted factory and production facilities outside the U.S. that produce handsets and hardware, and a higher percentage of those jobs were held by women.  This was the main cause of the decline in female representation at Microsoft. In short, a strategic business decision made in the longer-term interests of the company resulted in a reduction of jobs held by female employees outside the U.S.

Even with this explanation, I want to emphasize that we are not satisfied with where we are today regarding the percentage of women in our workforce. Our senior leaders continue to be deeply committed to doing everything possible to improve these numbers.

Our future path:

Taken as whole, I would characterize our efforts to improve workforce representation as showing signs of promise, with much more committed work still to do. In a company the size of Microsoft, making dramatic changes in terms of our overall workforce composition is an undertaking that cannot be over-stated. Our cultural transformation will not take place overnight. It will take steadfast commitment, accountability, targeted actions – and time.

Diversity and inclusion are critical underpinnings to our evolving culture at Microsoft and powerful bridges to the marketplace. They can be determining factors in whether or not talented people come to work for us, and whether people buy our products. We have much work to do to increase the pipeline of diverse talent, increase retention and match talent to job opportunities – and it is in our industry’s interest to be transparent about the current state and get on with the solutions. Along with our peers, we need to continue working together to land thoughtful, enduring and practical diversity and inclusion initiatives that transform our workforce for the benefit of the industry, our employees and our customers.

EvGA GTX 780 HydroCopper / WANTED Corsair H100i Intel mounting bracket.

Hi all,
An outside chance i know, but a friends son bought a pc with AMD set up, which never worked, and i was asked to help sort it. After a lot of RMA’ing etc he has now switched to Intel :)
The problem is the H110i GT cooler has only AMD fittings with it, and trying to get the Intel parts from the seller looks unlikely.
SO, does any kind soul have the Intel pump bracket and not need it? Willing to pay for it, and obviously cover postage.

Please, and Thankyou.

ALSO..
Selling on…
