The over 60s will have the chance to fulfil their curiosity for surfing the Internet at a series of nationwide workshops.
Sponsored by Chichester based Internet Service Provider (ISP) Argo Net, the workshops will show so called ?silver surfers? how they can email loved ones and friends around the globe and explore sites on the Internet.
?With more leisure time on their hands than most to pursue a wide range of hobbies and interests, this age group represents probably the fastest growing sector of Internet users,? said an Argo Net representative. ?The benefits of such a system are obvious, especially for the old on a budget or those who are housebound.?
Admission to the silver surfers? workshops will be free, but numbers will be limited. The first one kicks off at Brighton?s Surfers Paradise Cybercafe on 6 August. ?We are currently planning others around the country,? confirmed Argo Net?s representative.
