It's extremely interesting to see what access to the internet means in countries under totalitarian regimes, like Cuba. There, connection to the internet is still sparse and very expensive ($1 per hour in a country where the average monthly salary is $30), but it's already making a massive impact. People are finding out about the world - and going into the world. I met a street jazz musician in Havana whose band got invited to play in the US and Europe purely because they managed to upload a video of their music to Youtube. For them, this is absolutely huge.
