The “Digital Gap”

January 10, 2010

Interesting article in the China Daily this morning discussing how digital and wireless technologies are creating divides between social and economic classes in Hong Kong.

One irony of the Internet age is that while, on the one hand, digital and wireless technologies are clearly bridging gaps, they are also creating or exacerbating them -generational, access and cost gaps, to name key ones, Tiffany Wong reports in this second of a two-part write-up

By no means is this an issue specific to Asia, but the generational gap in countries like China is already vast. Is digital and mobile technology making this gap worse?

Thoughts?
