Digital Divide“Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normaland ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the worldworks. Anything that’s invented between when you’refifteen and thirty five is new and exciting and revolutionaryand you can probably get a career in it. Anything inventedafter you’re thirty-five is against the natural order ofthings.”Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt
