Broadband Makes Town An English-teaching Hub

Ten Sleep Wyoming, population 350, is finding an entirely new economy because of broadband and the web.  The town has become a hub for teaching english to over 15,000 students in Korea via the ‘net. Eleutian Technologies is hiring English teachers across northern Wyoming for the project and estimates that teaching English to Asian rim students is a multi-billion dollar market.  Now we can expect thousands of Asians to speak in a flat Cheyenne accent.  Thank heavens the company  isn’t based in Alabama.
