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.
