Internet Breaks Down Walls Between NeighborsInternet homepages will soon be created for individual apartment complexes, including 230 in Koyang and 45 in Paju City, both of which are in Kyonggi province. These homepages will be up and running by August and may be accessed for free.
This project, run by 'Korea Cable TV Kyonggi Broadcasting Company' and 'House Culture 21st Century Public Campaign,' is intended to encourage neighbors to get to know one another.
The groups will begin by opening Internet homepages for the three complexes in Kangsun town, Ilsan, as well as 52 complexes in Koyang city.
Once these homepages are created, residents will be able to attend and participate in self-governing meetings without leaving their apartments. Moreover, they can meet and exchange information with neighbors they most likely would never have met.
