I think the deployment of compters needs to be varied. In some cases,
individuals would warrant a PC of their own, such as:
Those with a disability that interferes with social function.
While public venues (like "cyber drop in centres") would suit others who
are disadvantaged, but could do with the social interaction, as well as
the digital access. This would be a suitable option for those
"temporarily disadvanged", such as the unemployed.
While on the subject of unemployed, perhaps those unemployed who are
considering a switch to a computer career might be able to work in such
a centre.. Maybe try and hook into the "work for the dole" scheme?
