AIDS CONCERT TO GO OUT LIVE OVER INTERNET
Technology will play its part in supporting a World AIDS Day concert initiated by Nelson Mandela and international musicians by broadcasting the concert live over the internet. Internet service provider Tiscali will handle the internet broadcast and is also broadcasting a song written specifically for the campaign. The song, 46664 (Long Walk to Freedom) was written by Bono of U2, Dave Stewart and the late Joe Strummer, and its title is Mandela’s prison number.
People can also join a virtual petition to urge governments to increase their anti-AIDS funding by visiting the campaign website. Callers and website visitors can then make donations to the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
