Parked outside the building where the conference was held, the Internet Bus “Netti-Nysse” attracted many visitors during a coffee break.
Netti-Nysse is a local, Tampere way to say “internet bus”. The bright yellow bus is familiar to all and frightening to none.
The bus has a modern auditorium with 10 seats, and 11 computer workstations.
The Netti-Nysse is operated by Tampere Public Library and may be booked for groups of people, or individuals can sign up for open classes. Any group of people who want to learn to use a computer can book the bus, which will then come to visit them in their neighbourhood.
Staff at Netti-Nysse give classes in basic computer use, and education about media and safe use of the internet.
What a great way to take this education to people and present it in a fun, welcoming environment!
