I can see the same thing happening with Google Bus
I was Google yesterday and Googlers were very excited about the Google bus project (I am not sure whether it is already covered here).
Being an Indian, I know how exciting it will be for people to discover Internet through Google bus. Bus looks really cool. It is launched only in Tamilnadu, they have plans for other states as well.
I imagine the project is mainly aimed at schools and colleges where they can show students first hand what Google errr I mean the internet can do for them :)
The areas the bus is traveling to, are these areas where the net is yet to be mainstream? or are they simply educating users on how to get the most from the web?
I did suggest them to introduce web entrepreneurship to young Indians, so that they can try more things and form their foundation on web when they are really young and have more time in hand.
they did this in Korea years ago with imperceivable results.
Personally, I know how exciting it is. When I used to run such a campaign for Army families, it was just so much motivating. I say that it was just like adding a new dimension to their thoughts. They never thought Internet and Web is so powerful.
I was in Chennai last week and I was giving a demo of Ticket booking to some locals, they were just trilled with the results. They were really amazed with Google maps.
Any initiatives to help people realize the power of Internet and web is appreciated (even from the Google).
