Offline America, Why We Have A Digital Divide
Fiona Morgan, Jessamyn West, Justin Grimes
Some people carry the internet in their pocket and can't imagine a life without network. Some people have no internet at all and can't imagine a life with email. There is a complex combination of emotional, political and logistical reasons why 35% of Americans have no broadband at home and why 22% do not use the internet at all. We can't start solving the problem until we understand it.
We'll untangle and explore those reasons from a variety of urban and rural perspectives, with an eye towards finding solutions and demythologizing the process. We'll give examples and we'll name names.
