Getting people online

Online Stef pointed me in the direction of a TechSoup post about the "We Are Visible" project, a project designed to empower people who are homeless through social media.

In addition to giving examples of how social media have helped people who are homeless, the "We Are Visible" site offers some great, animated tutorials on creating an email account, joining Facebook, joining Twitter, and starting a blog. ----- good resources for any library that helps people get online.

And on the subject of homelessness, I was interested to learn that there is a Homeless Book Club here in Madison, held at Bethel Lutheran Church:  http://streetsofmadison.blogspot.com/
