A flyer or flier, also called a circular, handbill or leaflet, is a form of paper advertisement intended for wide distribution and typically posted or distributed in a public place or through the mail.

An envelope is a common packaging item, usually made of thin flat material. It is designed to contain a flat object, such as a letter or card.

Traditional envelopes are made from sheets of paper cut to one of three shapes: a rhombus, a short-arm cross, or a kite. These shapes allow for the creation of the envelope structure by folding the sheet sides around a central rectangular area. In this manner, a rectangle-faced enclosure is formed with an arrangement of four flaps on the reverse side.

Re: Data Reach
I couldn't agree with you more. If we build and use (even the current) infrastructure  that allows everyone in the city/county/etc. to use it, we could "kill to birds with one stone" and help to ease the huge problem that it is poverty and segregation.

Of course, this is not but a quite naive/uber-positive way of think that everything is going to get solved, however we have to start somewhere.

Re: Data Reach
Most of the wolds poor can see the food thats around them, they just can't afford it. Most of them don't have farm land of their own to grow food, or access to enough water to irrigate the crop. They don't even have enough water to wash their hands.


What the poor need is access, the ability to earn enough money to buy food and water.

Data Reach
The fact that even the "poor" people has got more easy access to information and communications is really a great achievement, and without going into debate of what is more important for the "poor", if a cellphone or running water and such basic needs. As an old chinese proverb says: "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." with access to the internet and to almost everything that they wish to learn. And with new ideas like the MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) to be able to adquire knowledge the odds even a little more for everyone. Now everyone can learn, no matter if we can afford a first world top class university or not.
