Can the digital divide be bridged?

How have computers, the internet and mobile phones changed your life?

In 2003, leaders at the United Nations World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) agreed that by 2015, more than half the world should be in reach of the net.

The world is still a long way from that goal.

Are there still stark inequalities in access? How can poorer nations benefit from the digital revolution? If you are involved in any technology projects, let’s have your comments and experiences.

  1. I am just a blogger. And blogging has changed my life for the best.

    Blogging gave me the vehicle of reaching the rest of the world from my private study and I have been able to address the erroneous misconceptions of Nigeria by the ignorant millions in the Western world who have been misinformed about Nigeria and Nigerians.
    From representing the new consciousness of the upright and cosmopolitan Nigerian intelligentsia on the message boards of various Western and Eastern web sites to the forums of thousands of blogs, I have critically corrected the wrong impressions of my beloved country Nigeria in the global village. And if not for the Internet, I would not have been able to do so without much sweat and financial cost.
