While Bono makes the case that extreme poverty could be eliminated by the year 2030 with the help of technology. Not all poverty, mind you, just extreme poverty. He says thanks in great part to technology, some of it in the form of medical breakthroughs, more people with AIDS are getting life-saving drugs.
