Internet Radios Aid Africa

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.
