Our  visual report of the inception trip to Chile (August, 2009) summarizes the different venues we visited. We met with infomediaries in libraries, schools, non-profit organizations, cybercafes, and youth centres. This was the first of three inception missions that allowed us to revise the study hypotheses and data collection tools. A second trip to Bangladesh took place in December 2009 and a third to Lithuania in January 2010.
