Myanmar’s Technology Leapfrog Into Mobile Money – PRX

YANGON, Myanmar – Burma’s democratic transition is leading to a tech transformation. Democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi told youth to stop wasting time on mobile phones and online.

Almost half of Myanmar’s population is under 24 years of age. Everyone is looking for the new government to catch up with the rest of Southeast Asia in terms of connectivity, potentially lifting millions out of poverty. This story was shared on PRX April 15, 2016.

#Indonesia: Snapshots of #Medan.  I want to share a great passage in the book I’m reading at the moment. Pramoedya Ananta Toer’s The Mute’s Soliloquy: a memoir. From Southeast Asia to sub Saharan Africa, multinationals have been stealing resources from indigenous people since the end of colonialism. Time to learn how to stop the theft and corrupt measures used by leaders to fool the people. This book makes me defiant, as Toer spent 14 years as a political prisoner on the island of Buru.
