My chums at Digital Unite are promoting Spring Online

Digital Unite, more than any other UK organisation, has been delivering events and training to help older people to get online.

This year it is extending its activities to a week-long celebration, called Spring Online that takes place on 16-20 May 2011. Silver Surfers’ Day, now in its tenth year, will take place on Friday 20 May as a celebratory finale to the week’s activities.

Since the campaign’s inception in 2002 over 100,000 older people have been engaged with computers through activities such as Wii parties, Hawaiian days and Skype sessions.

A lot of people talk about reducing the digital divide. Digital Unite actually does something about it. I wish them lots of good fortune with the events this year. Dick Stroud
