Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?
Information technology provides good opportunities for the residents to not only access various information, but also produce it. Using information technologies like the internet and mobile phones that become more and more affordable, the residents should be able to easily share the information of their surroundings. However, they have not taken full advantage of those opportunities yet.
There are at least four requirements to allow the residents to benefit from information technology properly. First, all residents have to realize the importance of sharing information of their surroundings. Second, they have to be able to share the information or producing it themselves using tech devices. Third, the devices like mobile phones, computers, or the internet have to be available to support the activity of sharing and producing information.
