India: Hole-in-the-Wall

An Indian physicist puts a PC with a high speed internet connection in a wall in the slums and watches what happens. Based on the results, he talks about issues of digital divide, computer education and kids, the dynamics of the third world getting online.

Interesting story, found it on John’s weblog, originally from Slashdot.

I think the story says a lot about how we all should be open and just jump into things, like we used to when we were kids. And also that we don’t always have to guide the children in their learning process, sometimes its better to just nurture their curiosity and then stand back and see what happens.
