PINGER PROJECT NEEDS AFRICAN HELP

Digital Content

- The PingER project at SLAC, headed by Les Cottrell, is collaborating with the ICTP to develop this monitoring aimed at better understanding and quantifying the digital divide. By January 1st 2003, about 19 hosts have been added in about 15 countries including: Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Columbia, Ghana, Guatemala, India (Hyderabad and Kerala), Indonesia, Iran, Jordan, Korea, Mexico, Moldova, Slovakia and the Ukraine. But as you may have notice there is still so little response from Africa (Ghana is the only one)! What is required to participate is very little as you can read from: http://www.slac.stanford.edu/xorg/icfa/icfa-net-paper-dec02/ejds-email.t xt Further details on the project can also be found in the working report at: http://www.slac.stanford.edu/xorg/icfa/icfa-net-paper-dec02
