Thanks in part to podcasting (and ProfCast), Philippe can teach in Montreal from his home in the Magdalen Islands.

Granted, such solutions aren’t typically for just everyone and relying on technology for social change is often a risky proposition. But technology does bring hope to a lot of people.
