A Q&A with former US Chief Technology Officer Megan Smith. 

Asked, "What’s your big idea that other people aren’t thinking about or wouldn’t agree with? Why is it so important?" Smith resopnded, "Radical inclusion and connection—of people, networks, ideas, needs, and resources—accelerates positive change, driving creative confidence for all. The breadth of human capacity and capability is extraordinary, especially when we are properly networked for faster sharing and iteration. Our world is full of committed, creative, passionate people who collaboratively solve challenges in their communities, often working together in unexpected and creative partnerships, and often with limited resources. Promising, partial, or full solutions to tough problems are out there and discoverable, yet sadly people with these solutions are too often our best-kept secret and not positioned for acceleration."
