Why should we care about Africa?
Jon Lebkowsky, 17 Nov 05

ITConversations has posted a recorded talk with WorldChanging's Board Chairman Ethan Zuckerman, fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, responding to the question "Why should we care about Africa?" "Natural catastrophes and their recovery efforts have overtaxed national and global organizations. In the void, Ethan Zuckerman sees networks of concerned private citizens self-organizing on the ground and on-line. As the patterns for collaboration form from the bottom-up, Ethan sees new possibilities in the application of IT to disaster recovery; these flexible models can also be replicated and evolved to address larger, more complex social dilemmas."

Oh geez. Sounds like what the IMF and the World Bank did. Consider Africa another nail suited for a specific hammer.
