I don’t know if that’s where black t-shirts come from. I don’t know how they are produced, and I don’t know the demographics of their creators. Like almost every other consumer good, the origins of the black t-shirt remain obscured.

Here’s a trick question: How do we get people to understand programming?

The Foundation offers fellowships to individuals to implement their innovative idea for social change. We are most interested in exceptional ideas at the intersection between openness, technology, knowledge and learning. Ideas that would really move the dial on access to global knowledge, social and economic development. The fellowship is not an academic fellowship aimed at research or academic study. Applicants should be social change agents who push boundaries and challenge accepted norms. They need not have all the answers, but should ask the right questions in a practical context.
