Abstract

Those new process suppose too many changes in ways that people express and think problems as connectivity and appropriation to the new tech. The real thing is that again too many ephifanies from neoliberal and unique thought model: out markets exist is growing a new stage for hope and fight against poverty and exclussion. The networks for solidarity are changing the face and perception about cultural, scientific and political activism, not only for richest inhabitants to the elites urban sector... inclusive for too many indigenous and very poor countries as Haiti, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua or Bolivia. What kind of uses and benefits had find associations, community groups and academic institutions in Latin America and Caribbean Zone for Internet? What kind of perceptions are changing during 1998-2001? Why is so important for sustainable development still fighting for MISTICA community and their efforts for create one independent vision into those questions?
