Who Needs the Internet?

I just read an article from CNN called Many Americans see little point to Web. Of the approximately one third of Americans who don’t have internet access, “forty-four percent of these households say they are not interested in anything on the Internet.” What?!? I’m not saying that anything I’m doing online is worthy of their time, but I can’t believe that there is nothing online that is worthwhile or interesting to them.

The story does say that some people just can’t afford to have internet access. I see that as a very legitimate problem. I think having access to the internet has become a necessity of life in the US. Many services are now geared primarily to those who are online—including many government and health care services. If people don’t see a point to the internet, I think we may not have done a good job in educating them on usefulness of it. Read the article here.
