Sammanfattning

This article deals with the tension between comercial aims and activities and more democratic and idealistic ones in projects that are pursued to counteract the "digital divide". The article focuses on a project; "Access Kumla" initiated by the TUC of Sweden. The project is characterized as a very ambitious initiative to counteract the digital divide. Its four aims can be summarized as follows: providing citizens with high quality, low cost computers, crrating a Community Network, providing knowledge about IT and improving local democracy with the help of IT. In our project the complex role of comercial activities and forces is emphasized. Firtsly, the emphasize the importance of finacial autonomy from a short-time as well as a long-time perspective. A further result is the surprisingly high degree of harmony or absence of conflict as regards the various aims and activities in the project. The most noticeable exception concerned the role of the TUC, especially in connection with the commercial activities in the project.
