Generation Consciente, Une Autre Afrique writes: (Fr) [1]“A book by Cameroonian Jacques Bonjawo, Internet, a Chance for Africa [L'Internet, Une Chance Pour l'Afrique in French] talks about the benefits of new information and communication technologies for Africa. However, the Internet promotes extraversion even if it is a way to make local cultures known. It glamourizes migration by forcing comparisons of standards of living, of educational, employment opportunities and of access to networks. “
