Internet cafe's: alternative childcare for migrant workers - Tricia Wang

The China Digital Times points at research by sociologist Tricia Wang, in an article about the problems surrounding childcare for migrant workers. By lack of alternatives, internet cafe's have become an unlikely replacement for schools and other childcare. Earlier in TechRice:
Internet cafes are a huge phenomenon across China. They have a somewhat unsavory reputation as a place to play games or watch porn, but internet cafes serve as a second home or cheap child-care for some Chinese. This an older slideshare that I somehow missed, but an amazing look into the lives of many Chinese netizens.
Tricia Wang is a speaker at the China Speakers Bureau. Do you need her at your meeting or conference? Do get in touch.
