Glazok: a Rural Russian Village With Its Own Website

Glazok is a quaint Russian village with its very own slick website. The village in the Tambov region 356 kilometers southeast of Moscow was founded in 1637.

Sergei Nugaev and Alexander Bratchikov, the founders of an educational project called "Circle," initially helped the 1,500 residents of the village develop the website as part of a distance learning project.
