Tales from the Coffeeshop: Lulu on Internet access in Seattle

"Recently, I was unemployed. 2009 was broken laptops, less library hours, and less money to buy coffee to access the computer. I now understand the value of free internet--especially how hard it was to access resources for job hunting, food stamps, and governmental assistance programs. After acquiring a job, I understand the privilege of access and connecting to community resources."

The media's job is to interest the public in the public interest. -John Dewey
