This took me back to the early Internet days, when the role of the Internet was being debated in Cuba. What was Fidel's view of the Internet?
One clue is his support of the formation of the Youth Computer Clubs (YCC), several of which had email and Usenet access in the pre-Internet days. This article recounts his financial and policy support of the clubs. As shown below, he expressed his envy of the young people at the dedication of the YCC headquarters, which occupied what had been the Sears store in Havana.

On the other hand, government leaders like Raúl Castro and Ramiro Valdés have warned of dangers the Internet poses.
