Apparently students have taken to passing media around on memory sticks, as this is the only way they can get around state-controlled media. Also driving this phenomenon is the fact that there are so few places to get on the Internet: in Havana there is only one Internet cafe, down from three a few years ago. Ricardo, a 28 year old philosophy student, gets the memory sticks from European friends, since they are scarce to find in Cuba through normal channels. 'Like many young Cubans, Ricardo plays a game of cat and mouse with the authorities. He doubts that the government will ever let ordinary citizens have access to the Internet in their homes. "That's far too dangerous," he said. "Daddy State doesn't want you to get informed, so it preventively keeps you from surfing."'"
