To help older adults in San Francisco connect their personal electronic devices to the internet, the SF Tech Council hosted "pop-up" events where people could receive one-on-one technical support and sign up for low-cost web services. An AARP Community Challenge grant helped to fund and promote the events, which offered assistance in English, Chinese, Russian, Spanish and Vietnamese.
