Post Tech link: A look at digital divide in back yard of nation's capital

Just outside the nation's capital, in one of the wealthiest suburban counties in the nation, Post writer Annie Gowen looks at digital divide in Fairfax. An interesting take as the federal government takes on the goal of making broadband affordable and universally accessible.

Post Tech also wrote at the beginning of the year how that divide impacts urban communities. Wonder what happened to Steven Theodore? A reader bought him a laptop and another is helping the family with monthly subscription fees for high-speed Internet.

I still don't understand what's wrong with using books for this type of school assignment.

Should Post subscribers cancel their print subscription and just read the news online instead?
