  1. Dar Dr. Martinez Dy,
    Congratulations on your recent doctorate! It is well-earned.
    I just came across your dissertation online and read it with interest. You are taking digital entrepreneurship in a valuable direction. Before reading it, I had assumed, without really thinking about it, that digital entrepreneurship gave women and minorities a more even footing. Now I know better, and a good deal more besides. I hope you go on to publish your findings in both academic and general-audience outlets!
