It's 9:05 p.m. in Wunrock, southern Sudan, and faces are aglow at the Mercy Corps compound. The generator hums from 8 until 10 p.m., and along with our own staff in this picture sit employees of nearby NGOs — who don't have Internet access at their compounds and are invited to use our wireless network.
