    Was giving the rural bronze workers internet access successfull or even helpfull in bringing back the success of their bronzework?  The title suggests that it id, but reading the article it felt more like the center was retraining people in other skills so they could do other things - actually surpressing the bronze trade itself.

      Thanks for the comment. I am sorry the Diary is confusing. Actually no, the Telecenters were so successful with the bronze workers that they opened the program to other crafts. The Telecenter itself is developing training courses for a number of other crafts that are willing to participate.
