. Hi guys, just a quick question really:
I've heard a lot of discussion on the "third world" in discussions on twit.tv
in various contexts but most recently on phones etc particularly over Nokia launches recently.
Is it still considered acceptable to use this term "third world" in the US?
As a British person - perhaps of a younger generation (I'm 29) we were always told at school it is more respectable and technically appropriate to refer to "LEDC". For me it jumps out now when I here more dated terminology - It just seems pretty bad.
I know this may seem a silly comment but seriously : it's intriguing from a cultural perspective about want is considered ok etc in the US.
Thanks for letting me know your thoughts !
