The Internet of Elsewhere
This week for the podcast
I had a nice long chat with Cyrus Farivar. Cyrus is a freelance journalist and a wanderlust geek who lives in the city of Bonn, Germany. He is also the science and technology editor for Deutsche Welle English and is the host of its internationally-syndicated radio program, "Spectrum."
When he's not doing all of this - he has been writing a book entitled The Internet of Elsewhere.
The book takes a closer look at web use and development in Senegal, South Korea, Estonia and Iran. Each has it's own flavour and story of growth and change, more importantly these locations also tell quite a different story to the one we hear about the development of the internet out of America.
Worth a read if you have ever wondered what life online might be like from a different point of view.
If you have been up to something brilliant web-wise, then let me know. You can email me at outriders at bbc dot co dot uk or find me on Twitter as @BBC_Outriders
Until next week!
