The economic buzz of the burgeoning Boston technology scene is largely clustered in Cambridge’s Kendall Square and the Innovation District in South Boston. Gilad Rosenzweig wants to expand its reach.
The MIT graduate is planning to open a startup space for local entrepreneurs, Smarter in the City, this summer in Dudley Square, which straddles the Roxbury-Dorchester line.
That is, if he can find someone from the tech industry to pay for it.
The project comes as a similar effort — providing work space and high-tech training — is forming in the Grove Hall section of Dorchester. Its name: the Dream Factory.
“Nobody says it’s a bad idea, but most people are very hesitant to believe that this could succeed because they don’t think the talent is here,” said Rosenzweig, who is trying to raise about $250,000 for the first year of the program. “You’ll believe that a young white kid from a suburb could come up with a great idea and be a master coder, but you won’t believe that a young black kid from Roxbury could do the same thing.”

KABUL — The Taliban threatened voters Monday and warned they will ‘‘use all force’’ possible to disrupt Afghan presidential elections next month, posing a crucial test for the country’s security forces seeking to show they can bring stability as the West prepares to end its combat mission by the end of the year.
The Taliban’s first direct threat against the April 5 vote was one half of a double blow to hopes for a peaceful outcome from the elections. Observers said the death of the influential vice president over the weekend deprives the country of a powerbroker who could have prevented bitter recriminations among factions after the new leader is named.

GENEVA — Leaders of a UN investigation of human rights abuses in Central African Republic said they will look into ‘‘reports of genocide’’ as they launched the inquiry Monday.
The chair of the investigation, Bernard Acho Muna, said he is concerned that hate propaganda used by both Christians and Muslims in the conflict will fuel more violence.
‘‘We are hoping that our presence and the investigations we are doing will be a signal that the people who are making this hate propaganda will not move to action,’’ said Muna.
The UN panel consists of Muna — a Cameroonian lawyer who was deputy chief prosecutor for the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda — former Mexican foreign minister Jorge Castaneda and Mauritanian human rights lawyer Fatimata M’Baye.
