Just a note of caution. People "into" the net tend to overestimate 
the number of people involved in it. It is a potentially dangerous
assumption to presume that "at least one person per branch" subscribes.
It should be remembered that the Internet is a great convenience, and
that it greatly facilitates rapid communication, but that NOT everyone
is connected (or gets the information provided there though those who are).
To believe (and act) otherwise does injustice to those who aren't.
