The study assesses and describes the interplay between public PC-based Internet access and private mobile-based access for urban teenaged public access venue (PAV) users in Cape Town. South Africa is a particularly fruitful “leading edge” environment to do this work since not only mobile use, but specifically mobile Internet use, is increasingly common even among resource-constrained young people. We combine quantitative surveys with open-ended interviews of users and PAV operators.

Las bibliotecas y telecentros han jugado un papel fundamental en situaciones de emergencia y esta investigación examina su rol después del terremoto y tsunami que ocurrió en Chile en Febrero del 2010. Las diferentes iniciativas se llevaron a cabo por la necesidad de proporcionar acceso a la comunicación a los ciudadanos de las zonas afectadas, dándoles la oportunidad de recibir información de las consecuencias de la catástrofe y para permitirles comunicarse con amigos y familiares.

Based on a survey of public access ICT users in five countries, this working paper outlines some basic characteristics of users – their demographics, history of using ICTs and reasons for using public access ICTs. This preliminary analysis indicates that while a large proportion of public access ICT users are young (40% under 20 years old), male (65%), students (44%), and have at least secondary education (82%), there is a fair amount of diversity in user characteristics.

This report provides a review of the Infomediaries study's key variables and articulation of its hypotheses. Having completed Inception Missions to Chile (October 2009), Bangladesh (December 2009) and Lithuania (January 2010), we now have a foundation on which to build this analysis. This “Lessons Report” will be of interest to researchers who are interested in how our methodology has evolved and the data collection tools that we have settled on to work in three different country contexts.
