The Community College Foundation of California promotes
technology awareness in poor urban areas with eBuses. An eBus
is a mobile computer lab with workstations and a satellite
linkup that travels through underprivileged neighborhoods,
offering computer training and Web access services.
\"We can just park the bus and people come right
up, We\'ll park in front of a library, do some
training, and then show people that the same technology is
available inside that library.\"

They have a nice WebSite and the buses even have WebCams. I think we ran something on this already, but it\'s neat stuff.
