In Romania, indicators such as the high speed of the internet and the low price of mobile packages make Romanians look like lucky people. However, the story, as always, is much more complicated than that. Access to technology is not equal and its use varies according to class, gender, ethnicity and location.
In this third episode of the Romanian Media Matrix Podcast, I asked Bogdan Manolea, executive director for the Association for Technology and Internet and Georgiana Linca or Aldessa, a local facilitator working for the E-Romnja association to discuss how Romanians use the media technology available to them.
Original music for this episode was composed and performed by András Gaat.
Track title: No Rhythm No Problem
