Commerce and Empowerment of Masses : Internet based information

Lot of Internet Users are empowered lot in India and abroad
to have lot of detailed and authentic information from n number
sources , sources situated across the world.
Also one needs to be in position, power or have money to get
this information from employees if he is not Internet savvy.

What about those who are poor or ordinary, powerless,
do not have internet or media access but still willing to have
genuine information regarding a problem. A problem or issue
can be technical, medical, social, economical etc.

Why not we have Service provider Centers  who give Paid
and Unpaid (Charitable) in information obtained from internet

1> This is similar to RTI. Of course the information is not limited
to public officer and it is "less official" than in case of RTI

2> This creates tremendous empowerment because
information is Power.

3> This gives employment to Internet savvy Unemployed.

4> This creates a level playing field for commoner who can just
have access to Information as much as an industrialist, moneyed
or powerful has.

5>This can set competition, revolution, etc.


Why not all TV channels, newspapers, magazines have columns
where common people can speak about corruptions in all the offices , private
or public , small or big .

We should have a "Corruption Expose Month" Where all the
energy and focus is given to crackdown all sorts of corruptions...

Warm Regards
