    1. This book provided some very basic information on the digital divide. It can be a good starting point for conducting newer and more relevant research. However, I am beginning to wonder why society is creating more and more problems around people with less education and less income. These issues seem to be evaporating because now, not even people with college degrees can compete in the workforce no matter how much they know about technology! So is the issue of the digital divide still relevant? F [...]
