Hey everyone, some questions

1) How is the "digital divide" any different than the socio-economic divisions created by any new product? Essentially, weren't there low income populations who did not have televisions when they first came out? Doesn't history indicate that this gap will close itself?

2) Do you believe that "network effects" among people determine the structure of the Internet, by means of isolating groups within it while excluding groups from it at the same time?

3) What age is appropriate for children to use the Internet? Is it necessary at all? Entirely imperative? Is it healthy for 11-year olds to spend hours a day on Instant Messanger, talking to friends whom they were just at school with for 8 hours?
