Web Access Spreads, Thanks to Bill!

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation focuses far more on tough issues, like malaria, than high-tech ones, but that didn't stop it from giving $17.5 million to fund Internet access in libraries in Botswana, Latvia and Lithuania.

This is an attempt to let these countries catch up, at least a little bit, to the U.S., where nearly all libraries are connected. Wonder how many users will be Googling versus. using MSN or Live Search?
