I have been reading a bit about an MIT project at a housing development called Camfield Estates in Roxbury. In 2000-2001, a few MIT doctoral students began a program to train residents to use computers after which time they received computers (and there was internet access in the development, too).

I am attaching a paper that was written by one of the two students, Randal Pinkett. It's long and academic, but what is interesting are the Recommendations and Conclusion sections, pages 11 and 12. Made me think hard about the WHY of what we are talking about doing - it suggests looking at desired outcomes, which I think is really important. Looking forward to having that discussion on Wednesday....
