Notes from the underground

3 February 2010

Talk about bringing services to those below!  The first of the Metro “Cibercentros” opened last week in the Zocalo Metro Station.   Additional Cibercentros are being placed in Delegacion offices and public libraries.

While these are bare-boned cyber-cafes (minus the cafe part), the Cibercentros will be offering courses and training workshops for computer users,  broadband Internet access, printing, faxing and document scanning, user support to small businesses, a job bank… and will help you with your homework!

While 25 computers per cibercentro, there  may not be adequate equipment to meet complete demand, and I have a slightly troubling vision of tourists hanging out sending  emails (or watching porn) while local kids are waiting to do their homework, it’s a good start.
