General Information:  

The best ideas of the information society will be celebrated at an 
'Internet fiesta' which will be taking place around the world on 17 
to 19 March.  

Supported by the European Commission's Information Society Project 
Office, the event aims to reflect the global nature of the Internet, 
with events on the Web and also in villages, streets, shops and 
cafes.  

It follows on from the success of the first Internet fiesta in 1999.  

Among the range of events on offer, children will be showing their 
parents or grand-parents how to use the Internet at school, artists 
will be creating together digital artworks, and administrations will 
be throwing their virtual doors open to citizens. Farmers will be 
discovering the Internet, where new markets will be created and a 
cybervillage will be inaugurated.  

At the time of going to press, there were 152 events registered on 
the database, but there is still time for more to enlist.
