FirstPlaces and “Wish you were online…”


These two services can facilitate internet users getting their friends and family members online with a physical reminder of something of interest they can access online at a familiar place. The first link is a presentation of how the services work and what they do.

Ideas for taking this project forward

This could be integrated into a campaign like the UK get online week, providing an easy way for users to encourage their friends and family members to get online. "Wish you were here..." could also be done with Touchnote or a similar service on a trial basis, and they might offer a discount to publicise their service.
