How, precisely, on a practical day-to-day level, do you see the internet as
being helpful to the average rural farmer? the average urban dweller? I
know it's hard to see the future, but what are your ideas? I'm very
interested to hear the views of African people.
I wonder how the average African, who has never been abroad, and has or has
not experienced the internet, feels about the internet, and its relevance
to her/his life.

Thank you very much for the web site information. I'll check them out.
I've heard music from various African countries, and enjoy it very much.
What I've heard, however, is a mixture of African and Western music.
