History of KICS
   
  Stuart Hertzog, author, journalist, technical writer and website designer founded the Kootenay Internet Communications Society (KICS) in 1996. Stuart formed the Society to bring knowledge of the Internet to individuals, businesses, and organizations and to accelerate the acceptance and use of the Internet.
   
  KICS' first project was building public Internet access sites around Nelson in 1997. A project made posssible by Industry Canada's Community Access Program. KICS placed public internet sites in the Nelson Municipal Library, the Dancing Bear Inn, Sidewinders Café, the Internet Café and the Nelson & District Youth Centre.
   
  This project continues and computers are presently available at the Nelson Municipal Library and at the David Thompson Library.
