Internet is monk e-business

AFP – The monks of China’s Shaolin temple, famous for centuries for their martial-art skills, are also experienced users of the internet.

The temple, in central China’s Henan province, has had its own website since 1997 — long before the country’s major portals started business, the Xinhua news agency reported.

The agency, reporting from an IT conference at the temple, also said the Shaolin monks often go online to gather information and communicate with the outside world.
