The New Digital Divide

The New Digital Divide – The arrogance expressed by this author exhibits everything that is wrong with “the digerati” (i.e. technically-skilled elite). “We have found the promised land”…”You must become as we are in order to be truly cool”…blah, blah, blah. Commentators on (or designers of) technology can take two tracks: 1) embrace and usher in technology neophytes 2) spend most of your time telling your peers how cool we all are…and how unhip everyone else is. Grow up. It smacks of “high school coolism”. There is room for diversity of approach and perspective. Why take the conflict tone and high road?
