Update October 2006

Giuseppe ist jetzt in England und hat mir vor ein paar Tagen folgendes geschrieben

Dear Franz,

thanks to the web we are again ready to improve the mission of http://www.give.at and of http://www.piazzetelematiche.it.

I was actually happy this morning in virtually meeting you by chance during one of my web researches, at the link

http://www.globalvillages.info/wiki.cgi?FranzNahrada .

To remind you who I am, please just have a quick look at the link (content / image …..around 1999 (?)):



Many things are changed from 1999, at personal level and in the global scenario.

At personal level:

In November 2003 I moved from Rome to London where my wife has been working since 2002.

In London I decided to change completely my life style and not to have a computer at home and a car, but to experiment how to access all ICT tools and services from public spaces as is the case in colleges, libraries or internet points…..for lifelong learning and volunteering for charities involved in urban regeneration and in building up community networks.

My experiment has been so far very rewarding, and at present:

I continue to share with others wonderful and updated telematic infrastructures at fees based on “pay as you go”

I continue to save a lot of money and to spend all my time in studying and keeping me updated, rather than in updating my personal software and hardware or, worst, in fighting against viruses and spamming

I continue to walk every day from 8 to 16 Km in my break times from online activities and for reaching different places where I follow lectures or lifelong learning courses for adult education at:

etc. etc . etc. etc.

All my possessions for staying tuned with the global village are:

2 (two) free email addresses (giuseppesilviATyahoo.com and giuseppe.silviATgooglemail.com ) .

6 (six) sticks or USB keys or pen drives (3 at home for my safety back-up and three with me in my mobile work / study).

1 (one) old mobile nokia phone from 1999 (the battery is the original one always functioning and used only for SMS).

1 little Hitachi radio for listening to music, bbc news , etc…very useful for improving my English understanding.

1 (one) rucksack or back bag for carrying my possessions and my wallet.

It is very difficult indeed for me to describe to you my joy for not having a personal computer / laptop or a flat ADSL at home (and the relating costs and the bimonthly bills) and at the same time to be able to be tuned at a minimum cost with the global village, but last and most important aspect, to be able to share anywhere, anytime and when I need some telematic infrastructures always updated to the upfont of the technology, both for the hardware, both for the software.

By now, that is my present glocal life in central London!

This message will be in seconds sent to you by me from the City lit, a centre for adult learning: http://www.citylit.ac.uk/about/Our_facilities/Building_gallery

Stay in touch.

All the best.

Giuseppe Silvi

3. zipcar (vedere anche allegato)



For someone like me who needs a car only twice a month and for about four hours each time, I’d only pay $66/month or $798/year. Compared to average driving costs, I’d save $9,270 by avoiding unnecessary car ownership.

4. Street car , The self-service pay-as-you-go car. Streetcar's new Volkswagen Golfs are available on demand 24/7 for rent by the hour, day, week or month. Book any car in the fleet online or by phone, and then use your Streetcar smartcard to pick up and return the car. It costs as little as £4.95 per hour or £35 per 24 hours. http://www.mystreetcar.co.uk
