Speaking about knowledge organizations and referring to monopolies like cable companies, one writer lifts up the challenges of the Internet and the challenges some have of accessing the Internet.

This topic was inspired by an interesting post found on the blog, North, titled, “The Internet destroys everything; for those that have access.”  Telecommunications has a history of dividing the population. The divide used to be about telephone access and now it is becoming about digital access. The “haves and the have nots” exemplify the socio-economic divide. Mobile handsets are more popular than hardwired Internet access, but it too has limitations.

What can be done to be more inclusive about the technology we treasure so much?
