Two interesting articles:
WebMaster March '97 p. 50 "It's a Wired World"
by Christopher Koch
"For 50 years the World Bank has helped developing nations by
building essential infrastructures such as transportation and
agriculture. Now a new World Bank project gives them something even
more valuable: information."
Essentially an article lauding the Bank, with emphasis on Zambia.
Is there really only one library in Zambia?
An interesting quotation: "Six thousand of the organization's
10,000-member staff are out in the field at any given moment. And
when the World Bank says someone is "out in the field," it means it."
"ZAMBIA Connects Via Satellite To The U.S. Backbone
by Steve Clark
Like most of its African neighbors, Zambia is a mining country that
exports various metals. Copper is one of its biggest exports. So,
what does a country with so much copper use for telephone service?
