One such conversation was with a doctor from Burma. He was intrigued by what this distributed infrastructure could mean for his work in Burma. We discussed how Burma is now the first “smartphone only” country in the world. I last went to Burma in 2007. I didn’t take out my phone – still a feature phone, this was the year the iPhone was released – as I was told I may be followed and arrested if the government thought I was a journalist.
