India: Internet Bus Project

Kudos to Google for doing this:

Today, we launched the Internet Bus Project, an initiative designed to showcase the benefits of the Internet to the people across the cities of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Over the last few years, we've been witnessing a steady growth in Internet adoption, but we wanted to do more to directly engage the offline population of India. So we're hitting the road over the next month and a half to demonstrate how the Internet can make everyday tasks simple with tools like Google Search, Gmail, Google Maps and more.

To learn more about the project and get updates from the road, visit the Google India Blog or the Internet Bus Project website.

  2. This is terrific! Kudos to Google for recognizing that India's smaller towns and villages are the quintessential India, and for conceptualizing something tangible on these lines. I do hope Google will consider taking this to more states. I'd be happy to help.
