A Decade of Cybercoffee

Posted by geeknews at 8:57 AM on September 8, 2004

It seems like forever ago, and it seems like just yesterday. It’s been a decade since the first Internet cafe opened for business in London’s West End. Cafe Cyberia was designed to support the way women used computers, at the time. Started with $35,500 in seed capital, the store grew to include international locations. The stores are now owned by a South Korean entity and have been rebranded.

Dave’s Opinion
Internet cafes have changed from being the hip place for stylish folk to gather for an evening of surfing and java to a drop-in spot for business professionals and consumers to grab a cup of joe and a check of the inbox.
