Digital Divide Digest

My recent blog about the 2007 election primary in Carbondale dealt with the election candidates (eight out of eleven) deliberately not using of the Internet for voter communications. I intentionally listed the candidate’s age along with a representative web address providing information about either their campaign, background, or other presence on the web.

One reader questioned if publishing the age of the candidate had any significance. The answer is simple. Age has always had an influence of technology adoption, as have other factors, particularly race, income, and geography. But there is more to the story.

It's also pretty standard procedure in most news stories to list ages.
