The Right to Internet Access
No sooner do I declare it a slow technology news week than this story comes out. Finland has declared access to the Internet a basic human right. This is the most recent news in a growing number of countries, backed by the UN, making such efforts.
From a training perspective, this is another barrier to web-based training knocked down. If Internet access (or more accurately, access to the information on the Internet) is a basic human right, so is access to online training and other organizational programs.
Although I wouldn’t expect that such efforts would necessarily lead to Internet-in-every-household, it certainly encourages such a movement. And the closer we get to having such consistent access to and familiarity with the Internet around the world, the less trouble introducing any online program will be.
