Lame - O

An adventurer from Seattle got HP to give him a bunch of digital cameras and printer so he could go to Papua New Guinea and try those products out on a community that has no connection with the outside world.
"...Bangs says he purposely selected a group that has never seen a digital camera. They live in an area with no roads, no electricity and no modern way to communicate with the outside world."
""We'll sort of surprise them," Bangs says."

From the article Digital World set to Invade No-Tech Culture
I think you readers know what I think.
In any case, its a good opportunity to think about Papua New Guinea.
872 people groups, 4 classified as unreached, about 5.8 milliion people. More specific people group information at the Joshua Project, organized by country here.
