Millions of Americans still go without internet – the bookless library arrives to assist

October 12, 2013

In this world of what we in the middle upper middle and professional classes think of universally connected, it’s a telling reminder that in Bexar County Texas (San Antonio ), one third of residents do not have internet access at home,

Yes you read that one correctly. One third.

So reports Time magazine in its October 14th issue here in Australia (September 13th online), in an article about a new totally digitalibrary called BiblioTech.

As I have written about in my digital inclusion posts, good internet access is the new dividing line in our modern world.  We are at a stage in our evolution when teenagers and young people will pay their phone bills rather than eating; that’s how important digital connectivity is.
