I am a lecturer at Arba Minch University.My areas of research interest are new media theory, video games and the whole concept of media. I wish and love to see a reasonably high standard of freedom of the press in Ethiopia. I write mainly on issues of the new/old media and their impact on Ethiopian politics,education and other social issues.
