Antiqua, a Land of Sea and Sun

 Antigua, a Land of Sea and Sun


Connect Antigua and Barbuda Initiative
A  fantastic example for us all to emulate!
By Gerard Mc Keon

Well the really great ideas are simple, simple and obvious!
So simple sometimes, that you think they are natural  and have always been there. Never created, in some strange magical  way, they just belong!
 
I have just returned from  an exploratory trip to Antigua. We were
there with our media partner South-South News  to experience Antigua's massive leap into the front ranks of the
modern IT world  of G4 connectivity and nano second lag times

Antigua, is positioning itself to be a world leader in IT Technology,
which is  a great thing for the Island and the people who live there.

I must admit, it was something much simpler, something small on the scale of multi-million dollar deals that caught my attention.

Parked in the Prime Minister's gated parking lot, a fleet of 5
converted buses that daily bring the Digital world to the poorest remote
schools on the island.
 Simple really!
 Remote classes,  well over 150 plus classes weekly delivering computer skills
 to children in the country side.
Children who often start their day driving livestock to the fields, at 5 am.
A familiar story: the  every day grind of life for young  children on   small subsistence  farms in a great  many fields around the world.

Now they can link  to the modern internet, they  can engage with  the great enormity of the world, no longer shackled to the demands of the field but
citizens of the world,  this is the wonder  and power
of the connected internet.

This surely, is simple brilliance, a modern day Rosetta Stone.
Bringing the modern  world to remote rural village children.

We at Black Tie International would like to see a 1000 buses,
emulating this wonderful initiative and bringing connectivity, information and skills to the other neglected and underserved regions of the world.

This initiative works, let's copy and implement it, again and again

Congratulations and thanks to Prime Minister, Hon. Baldwin Spencer
and Dr. Edmond A. Mansoor, Minister of State, Information, Broadcasting & Telecommunications, Office of the Prime Minister.
