If South Korea is an example of what Panama is attempting to do by following the Microsoft guide on how a country can jump into technological advancement, then things sound like it's going to be a bumpy road to get there.
Apparently Panama's President has signed a treaty with Microsoft to push technological development in the centralamerican country.
And what's the recipe?
- A computer for each and every one of the students of Panama (I'm wondering if they will get to use other things what were not Windows and other Microsoft stuff)
- You will be able to do all things government related on-line (wanna bet that it will be IE-only?)
- Plus other things.
Feels so nice to see that governments still see Microsoft as the cornerstone of technology (or even worse, sell out).... what a shame!
Too depressing, really to keep on writing about.
