Google Blimps & Balloons to Provide Wireless Networks in Africa

argylesock says… This sounds great. I’m not as tech-savvy as some who read my blog, so please let me know if I’m talking bollix. But maybe there’s a future of useful blimps in Africa. If this idea works out, farmers and growers in rural areas, including pastoralists, might find it useful. Here’s Google’s announcement about trials in South Africa. I’m grateful to my fellow blogger Rashid Faridi for drawing attention to this story.

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
