Linking Africa: The Future Is Digital (Enhanced DVD)
Africa has the fastest-growing cell phone market in the world fueling the continent’s IT growth. Nokia and Google have noticed this growth and may incorporate it in future business policy. This program examines how East Africa’s businesses have used this new technology in innovative ways for all facets of living including education, business and healthcare. Viewers of this DVD will meet software developers and technological pioneers who are connecting Africa with socio-educational programs such as One Laptop per Child. Growing technology is supporting communities with services that strive to overcome civil strife and poverty. The video also takes a candid look at the uneasy governments that may view the Internet as a risk for uprisings similar to Arab Spring and more importantly view this as a profitable way to bring their countries closer to parity with western nations. Unavailable in French-speaking Canada.
