Wiring An Ancient Malaysian Tribe
from the just-what-they-need dept
Some university is trying to connect an ancient Malaysian tribe to the internet. It seems like a nice project (sold to the tribe by explaining it would allow them to keep in touch with their children who left to take jobs far away). But, in a place that has no telephones and very little reliable electricity you have to wonder how useful the internet is going to be – especially once the university folks take off.
