Online friends

I took this photo of my son and his friend chatting to each other online yesterday at the same time as physically sitting next to each other. I want to look at this some more with the literature but am a little time challenged at the moment. Suffice to say, my other thought was about the digital divide - this photo is only possible because the young people have access to lap tops-think of all the kids in the world who cannot even read and write.

Yes I know Microsoft of Google or someone was going to provide all the children in Africa with laptops but are they also going to provide them with broadband access? I don't think so.
