The Internet and the Poor

Mike Hicks sent us this abcnews story where you can read about a conference on technology and the poor. Certainly this is a very real problem- computers can be had cheaply, but for a family on a shoestring budget, a $500 machine is probably out of the question. Will the net become a place where those who can afford the hardware can hang out, and a place where the poor are just out of luck? It's a harsh reality that this conference is going to try to address.
