El Salvador, Peru, Mexico, Chile: Internet Day

May 17th was “El Día de Internet,” or “Internet Day” in Latin America and several bloggers offered homages to the World Wide Web. From El Salvador, Hunnapuh asks [ES] “but really, what is the significance of the internet?” A commenter at BlogsPeru remarks that just around the corner is “International Webloggers Day.” (No sign yet when Martian bloggers will be commemorated.) And from Mexico City, Isopixel, ALT1040, and Chilanga Banda all have a review of events. The day coincided with Mexico's 20 year anniversary of being connected to the web. Ciberamérica celebrates [ES] Chile's advancements in e-commerce and e-government.
