Picture of the Day: Blackboard Blogger in Liberia

liberias blackboard blogger

Alfred Sirleaf is an analog blogger. He runs the “Daily News”, a news hut by the side of a major road in the middle of Monrovia. He started it a number of years ago, stating that he wanted to get news into the hands of those who couldn’t afford newspapers, in the language that they could understand.

This picture, I found on Afrigadget, a blog about low tech solutions for every day challenges in Africa. A blog that always gives me hope.

Even though yesterday, the CERN in Geneva celebrated the 20th anniversary of the "start" of internet, I am pleased to see that some people use "traditional" means to pass the word.

@Peter:

And I am sure they have less struggles with technology than we have! ;-)

And I am sure they would give anything to trade their struggles for what you consider technological struggles.
