Created by the launch of SixDegrees.com in 1997, social media is now nearly 25 years old and still proving to be a medium with the power to disrupt, innovate, and even (re)shape the lives of its users.  With its unbelievably rapid rise as an industry and profit center, the general public is still grappling with questions of privacy, security, and equity among these communication platforms.

From our friends at the SA Report:

"A new nonprofit launched last month called San Antonio Digital Connects has developed a road map aimed at closing this digital divide. Now it’s seeking local, state, and federal funding to fulfill its ambitious goals.

On Monday, the organization launched its advocacy effort and announced that former USAA and Rackspace executive Marina Alderete Gavito will serve as its founding executive director. Gavito will lead the charge for the public-private-community collaboration."
