Michael Guta Info

Michael is an ICT coordinator for developing countries, specifically in Africa. He assesses the viability of implementing technologies in rural areas where there is minimal infrastructure available. The goal is to put systems in place that can sustain themselves with solar, wind and other forms of energy for wireless Internet if the infrastructure allows it and satellite Internet if the funding permits it. Michael also writes about ICT for local and international NGO’s and spends his free time as a playwright and an aspiring Photoshop enthusiast.
