I decided to choose Professor Iqbal Z. Quadir as my hero in this game. I was struck by his innovative strategies for using cell phones to help overcome poverty, first in his native Bangledesh, then in Africa. See his TED Talk
. At the time, he was working in NYC for Citibank. I occasionally wondered if he was still in NY because I wanted him to visit my ITGS (Information Technology in a Global Society) class.
He does not appear to be a member of Facebook or Twitter, but I have located his bio on Wikipedia
, which led me to his page on the MIT site
. He is not a banker any more.
It's getting very late for this teacher to be up playing a game. But I am hooked on how this works. I'll be back to finish my missions.
