Almost a year after the conflict with Israel, the BBC's Marie Keyworth reports from Gaza looking at the economy there and how ordinary Gazans are getting by. And as technology entrepreneurs and investors meet at the University of Oxford's Said Business School for the Silicon Valley in Oxford conference, we look at how the internet is still creating new jobs. Leila Janah, CEO of Sama Group, a not-for-profit organisation, explains how the internet and connectivity has brought women in the developing world into the modern economy without them having to leave their communities. And Phil Libin, co-founder and CEO of Evernote, a notebook app, tells us why you shouldn't embark on a career as an entrepreneur if you're only motivated by money.
From finding awe in Hubble images to visiting the doctor, science is everywhere in our lives. Whether we wear a white lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since eighth grade, science affects and changes us. We all have a story about science, and at The Story Collider, we want to hear those stories.
