Date aired: October 8th, 2018

Guest: Mei Lin Fung, joining the show from Palo Alto, CA., near Silicon Valley

Internet technology pioneer Mei Lin Fung founded the People Centered Internet chaired by internet co-creator, Vint Cerf, because she has always been committed to new technology that serves people and enhances their health and lives. Fung’s efforts attracted the attention of dry eye, evaporation and eye mist researcher, Sharon Kleyne and led to Kleyne’s invitation to Fung to join her as a special guest.

Kleyne’s talk radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Water Life Science®/Nature’s Pharma®, The Power of Water® & Your Health sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® on VoiceAmerica, teaches listeners every week about the lifelong role that evaporation plays in peoples’ health. Also the founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® in Grants Pass, Oregon, Kleyne discovered decades ago that the role water vapor evaporation plays in the onset of disease was vastly underrated. Today, pioneers like Kleyne and Fung know that water and education are at the heart of any movement to improve health.

In her battle against dry eye, for instance, Kleyne depends on the power of the internet to carry out research and reach the widest possible global audience with her results. Fung’s efforts create new internet technology that opens to everyone a global network of positive change agents. These change agents increase access and ensure equality, protecting the vulnerable and prioritizing human well-being.

At 14, growing up in Singapore, Fung was strongly influenced by George Orwell’s 1984 and Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. “I grew up thinking,” said Fung, “that strong leaders in my lifetime will control us with technology. I also thought that we can decide that all people should have the right to find joy and happiness on the internet. It’s all about how we end up becoming connected to the information we generate,” Fung added.

Kleyne and Fung also discussed the internet of things, hoping to educate their global audience about many relationships they may take for granted. “The internet of things connects things to people,” Fung said. “The refrigerator is a good example. On the fridge, a sensor informs you that it is out of milk. Imagine the journey of a grain of rice from the field in which it was grown all the way to your table. Imagine putting the rice on the table in front of your children,” Fung continued. “Imagine being able to show them where it was grown, how it was harvested, the ship that transported it, the cup that measured it. Think of the benefits!”

Kleyne and Fung agreed that we are all pioneers at the threshold of a brave new world in which internet technology serves the daily interests and improves the health of people everywhere.
