The Fifth HOPE (2004): "Technology in Romania" (Download)

  • 099

Friday, July 9, 2004: 5:00 pm (Area "B"): An overview of the ten year period in Romania from 1989 to 1999 and the challenges involving access to technology, the perception of IT in the formerly communist country, and issues of freedom of speech and information. Ninety percent of all access to the Internet is still done via timed dial-up connections which makes connectivity much harder for programmers, researchers, and the average citizen. Learn about the differences in technical cultures and what is being done to level the playing field.
