Fwiw, something like this, tailored to city dwellers needs, would be
good for urban spaces too. Bangalore has CIS-India, but afaik, they
concentrate on research and policy-making and dont have any programs
like this night school[0] which teaches libre software to kids just
like FAT[1] at Delhi does. I find the latter particularly interesting
as its target group is specific --women and technology (and not only
libre software). IIRC, Gayatri Buragohain of FAT is on the Indichix
list and it would be great if she piped in her thoughts.
