The globalisation process is laying a network of fibre optic cable around the world; it is sending mobile technologies out into almost forgotten, desolate territories; the wired world is another kind of community, a new culture, to which the cost of membership is the cost of access.

Is it important for you and your community to have access to this wired world and to the knowledge available within it, including your own?

Video Translation: Sometimes it's very difficult when you know how much money and investment goes into technology and how can you justify it when there are so many issues to deal with at home, but I think that in looking at the big picture and looking down the road, the future of our people, how we are going to use technology to in fact preserve a lot of our knowledge, and it's really important to accept technology and sciences with that in mind.
