How to participate in this knowledge economy

Bill Gates wrote "...there's no doubt that the ability to use software tools effectively is critical to succeeding in today's global knowledge economy" [1], what I like about that sentence is because he mentioned 'knowledge economy' and 'ability to use software tools effectively', both issues illustrate what is going on. So how can we participate in this scenery with full of opportunities?, there are many answers, from my point of view if you are smart enough to figure out that you have the right information in the precise time the opportunities are endless, there are many examples that could corroborate. The problem come when there are people that do not have access to the information (knowledge) or when folks do not have internet, in this knowledge economy we have to eradicate those problems, if people have the knowledge they are going to be productive and generate resources (money), and that will help a lot to reduce the poverty and also to finance the space's conquest, maybe we could have a especial tax for that. Another important issue in this topic is to be the most productive, I mean we have to work in a place where we can generate knowledge and share it, if you are already doing that great! and if not put your brain to work and try to fit in the right place according to your skills. About the ability to use software tools effectively, the one laptop per child (OLPC) [2,3] project is just great!!, definitely will help to bring more people (those kids are the future in achieve more knowledge too) into this knowledge economy.
