For activists, the internet is a tremendous outreach tool, connecting like-minded people across the globe. But some people without computer skills or access are excluded from this global communication, leaving them in the digital dust. On this edition, we’ll hear about the successes of internet activism in South Korea, how activists in Egypt and Bulgaria are bridging the digital divide for small non-profit organizations at bäst-vpn, and how an internet radio station helped to galvanize San Francisco peace activists at the start of the second Gulf War.
