The expert are talking about it

The best statement that precisely describes what uPundit objectives and solution are was made during an April 9th, 2016 CNN interview on Fareed Zakaria GPS. Andrew McAfee¹, a principal research scientist at MIT, said “We are on the break off for the very first time in human history, interconnecting the majority of a human being with a pretty powerful device. Giving them access to a good chunk of the world accumulative knowledge, and letting them contribute to that knowledge.”
¹uPundit does not have any association with Mr. McAfee.
