BC First Nations and the Internet

TheTyee.ca writes about the impact of the internet in isolated First Nations communities in British Columbia. Crux:

But a broadband connection doesn’t mean downloading the latest Bedouin Soundclash album or “messengering” a friend who lives down the street. For the aboriginal communities that are being wired, internet means school, family, health-care and job opportunities.

High-level physics courses are now available online, and bright aboriginal students who choose to stay in their villages … have the drive to take online classes and strive towards university.
