I followed the concert through Relay and enjoyed catching the live reporting from my iPhone while I was at the gym that evening. Using Google Glass makes VOA seem so cutting edge! As to the video’s story, my one wish is that I would have liked to see more footage that came directly from the device.

Even in the federal government, innovations are happening everywhere. It’s hard to keep up. Perhaps we could learn more about them from an upcoming blog post!

Ten years ago there was not even a single cell tower in Afghanistan. It is great to see them making strides towards implementing technology. Now, as it was then, radio rules. A popular item to the villagers (the ones without power in the mountain regions of the south) was a radio that had a small solar cell on it for power, and a hand crank to generate energy at night. Hopefully one day the country will have faster access to information.

Comment on Tales from Afghanistan: A Case for Community Radio by Yousof Kokcha http://www.innovation-series.com/2014/01/30/tales-from-afghanistan-a-case-for-community-radio/#comment-109113 Yousof Kokcha Wed, 29 Jan 2014 19:31:59 +0000 http://www.innovation-series.com/?p=5766#comment-109113 Thanks Son. By Community Radio, I meant all forms of radios. In the case of Afghanistan, shortwave is very popular as well as other radios such as on feature phones. By the word “community” I meant that the information is consumed at the grassroots level or brings forth community awareness. I hope that answers your question.

By community radio, do you mean shortwave radio?

Sometimes mass media doesn’t translate to big impact. It’s the targeted programming at a grassroots level that can make the greatest influence.

I would say it’s all word of mouth up to now or radio and some TV. There is tremendous upside and potential in using other means to find out about community programming as the local media and communities learn how community programming is broadcasted within the middle eastern and western media.
