Web evangelist brought Colombia online

Thursday, October 17, 2019


In 1995, 30-year-old Maria Trujillo was pregnant with her first son Martin, and people told her to stop working so hard. She’d just helped connect Colombia to the internet for the first time, and now she was busy preaching the word of the web to university students and faculty in Cali, Colombia’s third largest city.

Now she is being hailed as the web evangelist who brought the nation online, Quartz reports.
