Digital Divide |Aug 19, 2013

Today’s NYT has a front page article, “Most of U.S. Is Wired, but Millions Aren’t Plugged In” that points out millions of people are “still on the sidelines of the digital revolution.” The article goes on to point out that “persistent digital inequality – caused by the inability to affort Internet service, lack of interest or lack of computer literacy – is also deepening racial and economic disparities in the United States, experts say.”

What can we do to close the gap in this digital divide?

On the software side, more innovation in making applications more user-friendly and cheaper is needed; and more digital technology education in skills and applications is needed.
Any takers?
