Digital Divide jump off article

Digital Divide jump off article

This is an article about the digital divide issue.  It is somewhat more positive than most as it talks about groups and individuals that are concerned and working toward solutions.  They also go over issues in bringing technology to the world (other than economic) such as language issues, delivery logistics and attitudes.  There are also a number of references to others sites and groups who are working on this critical area.  It is a nice piece talking about what some are actually doing, and how it is being done.

Two of the groups they talk about are Dot Force and PeopLink.org - worth checking out.

It's a nice article talking about providing digital accessibility to the people in the third world countries so they can receive both social and economic benefits. PeopLink.org, a nonprofit organization, is using technology to look for ways to help these people meet their own needs. It's worth reading.
