    1. Learning – The Internet has made learning especially of cutting-edge technology easy to access.
    2. In Kenya, business opportunities have just opened up recently that show the viability of the Internet as an economic space – eg. Bloggersphere
    3. Resource – Software and Art especially CC – Creative Commons.

    OMG……Iam so excited to see such an organization in Kenya. I am a Kenyan living in the USA.

    Are you doing broadband internet access on interviews on Kenyans in Kenya only??
    Those cybercafes need to speed up their internet. I was dying the last time I used one.
