“We’ve all heard that a million monkeys banging on a million typewriters will eventually reproduce the entire works of Shakespeare. Now, thanks to the Internet, we know this is not true.” – Robert Wilensky

Well, that may be true (does that mean this blog is contributing to the monkey-chatter?) but it’s also true that there is a ton of fascinating Jewish content on the Internet. Here’s an idea for a tenpartners program – find a suitable space and host a temporary “Jewish Internet Café.” You’ll need a location with Wi-Fi access (or if it doesn’t have Wi-Fi, look into temporary wireless data options), such as the JCC, a school or synagogue, or perhaps even rent out a real café If that’s possible. Bring someone knowledgeable about interesting Jewish sites to lead the group, and invite participants to bring their (wireless-enabled) laptops to take the virtual tour. Food and drink will make the event even more entertaining.

(Remember to make sure there’s enough capacity on the wireless access point(s) to handle many people surfing at the same time.)

Cost and revenue example: $200 equipment rental + $400 refreshments = $600 => 40 attendees x $15 participation fee per person
