Brazil World Cup Kicks off Today!

The bets are on. Everyone has hopes and dreams for their own country. Yet, as ever, the odds look more stacked in favour of some countries than others. Anyone seriously backing Australia?

A lot of people do have high expectations for host nation, Brazil, though – for the football, you understand. The organisation and infrastructure, however, might be more of a problem…

  • We investigate how Brazil’s social community is “split” over the World Cup
  • Brazilian journalist Nathalia Fernandes addresses the “bottlenecks” that “block Brazil” as the World Cup approaches

IDG Connect has also published a range of editorial on the extremely varied tech scene across Brazil over the last few months – here are some of our top picks:

  • How one US$10m scheme could inject new life into the Brazilian startup scene
  • A President Dilma Rousseff spoof page and Brazil’s unique love affair with Facebook
  • The story of the app programme which emerged from the favelas of Rio de Janeiro and is now helping UK teens
  • UK journalist, Nick Booth offers an analysis of why “bureaucratic Brazil” is missing out on open gaols

Perhaps our Latin American editorial highlights from 2013 might be of interest too?
