Internet Radios Aid Africa

Topic: 

Cavan McCarthy passed along This Interesting story from the BBC on Internet radios in Africa.

They have some kind of special radio connected to an adapter card in a Pentium computer, on the other end, the radio is connected to a detachable micro-dish receiver outside the window. It\'s currently operating in four countries - Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Ethiopia and is called Arid Lands Information Network - Eastern Africa (ALIN-EA)

I\'ve read about something similar here in the states on Slashdot.
