Established in 2006, the Dot Com Mob was the idea of project sponsor Bob Magid.
Bob had witnessed the success of a technology centre in Israel giving Ethiopian refugees access to the Internet for the first time, so he set out to prove that technology is the great unrealised key component in Indigenous education in Australia.
