Bluebird’s President & CEO, Michael Morey, recently joined John Roth and Frederick Weiss to discuss the future of the internet in an episode of the Head in the Cloud Podcast. Morey addresses many issues communities face around the digital divide, and specific long-term solutions for bridging the divide.
