A lot of stories about technology in rural areas often don’t have much to say except for how rural it all is, and how amazing that they now have access to technology x or y. Like this one about PC’s set up in a remote area, titled “These PCs came on elephant’s back”. Wired has one titled “Indian Villagers Pedal Wireless“, a bit more in depth. It’s the exotism (look at how different they are!) of many of these stories that annoys me sometimes – although I also enjoy some exotism, it shouldn’t be the only reason for the story. I’m more interested in figuring out how technology and social worlds interact.
