UPDATE: Apologies for the double post below. I was playing with Diigo, which does auto Daily Links to the blog, and running to soccer practice, and, you get the idea. Anyway, I’ll leave this up since it’s generated some comments…
- Quote: The research suggests that kids who live online understand the process
by which knowledge is produced and shared in an online environment,
whereas those kids who come in within 10 minutes, they’re trying to get
the answer and get off. So they’re not as critical of a corporate Web
site, for example. That’s just one example of some fundamental
inequalities in access to social skills and culture competencies
between the information-haves and have-nots.
Note: Interesting interview with Henry Jenkins, who I personally think articulates the moment very clearly. I find that access gap as it relates to literacy to be really interesting.
