While researching Internet adoption by rural and remote communities in India we detected a disconnect between people's perception of computers and Internet access as a means to social mobility and their usefulness to them personally. We then observed an ICT4D program where a successful union between technical skill and purposeful activity was established, as gauged by the young workers reporting far more satisfaction and engagement than any others in our survey. We suggest that future efforts at bringing technology education to the bottom of the pyramid build in clear personal motivators for the students to amplify opportunities for success.
