Peru: Increasing Interest in Information Technologies

An empty auditorium to hear an interesting lecture leaves the blogger at Sin Papel [ES] perplexed. What can be done to get Peruvians more interested in information technologies? The lecture given by a university professor was not well attended, and not because of high registration costs. It was free. The blogger thinks that students should take advantage of these free opportunities, which would help the country remain more competitive. He also asks his readers how to generate more interest and encouragement to Peruvians.
