Bono targeted worldwide poverty in the wishes he was granted as a recipient of the inaugural TED Prize from the Technology, Entertainment, Design conference.

The U2 frontman and global activist said Thursday he wished for the creation of ONE, a social movement he hopes will have more than 1 million Americans fighting worldwide poverty.

He also wished to tell people of this movement 1 billion times and wants TED to help connect every hospital, health clinic and school in Ethiopia to the Internet.

Sun Microsystems, Inc., today announced it will join Bono to electronically enlist legions of Americans into the ONE Campaign, a non-profit initiative launched by the singer and social activist to raise the voices of citizens to combat AIDS and poverty in Africa.
