I've never really been the prototypical geek in that I'm rarely interested in tech for its own sake. Instead, I've always been much more fascinated with what it can be used for. I blogged earlier about wireless technology in Laos and Cambodia and talked about how the new technology was helping people in some of the poorest parts of the world connect and communicate with each other and the rest of the world.
A new article came my way the other day talking about wireless in Nepal and interestingly, they're using Windows instead of Linux. They they talk about the problems with localisation and in an environment where the majority of people can't read even their own language, let alone English, such things are critical.
Still, forget about surfing the net down at Starbucks, this is life-changing stuff. Feel free to donate. We have.
