Summary
Africa has the fastest-growing cell phone market in the world, fueling the continent's IT boom and making Nokia and Google sit up and take notice. This program examines East Africa's burgeoning and innovative use of information technology in small businesses, health care, education, and social activism. Viewers meet the software developers and digital pioneers who are increasing Africa's connectivity with programs such as One Laptop Per Child-an initiative that brings hope to an area ravaged by civil strife. The video also looks at the mixed feelings of uneasy governments who see the Internet as both potential spark for an Arab Spring-style uprising and a lucrative way to bring their countries into the 21st century
