Columbia to Colombia -- a digital journey
Placeholder Image
Last week, I took a trip to Colombia, South America, with my son, J.P., a senior at the University of South Carolina (USC) in Columbia, S.C. In addition to being a great father-son trip that we will both long remember, a number of things happened along the way that reminded me of how the Internet and new technologies are changing the world -- and how we in South Carolina need to understand this new and changing world if we don’t want to be left behind. For too many of us, when we think about Colombia, we only think about cocaine traffickers and Juan Valdez and his coffee. While cocaine is still a problem, there is a lot we can learn from Juan.
