  • 2.

  • 8. THE  GREAT  DIVIDE   8  License:  Some  rights  reserved  by  Steve  Snodgrass    (Attribution  –  Flikr)  “…  seniors’  online  cultural  consumption  –  think  digital  downloads  of  music,  TV  and  movies  –  is  dismally  lagging.”  [3]  
  • 9. THE  GREAT  DIVIDE   9  Why  does  it  matter  if  other  technology  is  used  to  access  music?  TV?  Movies?
