The Digital Divide

I think there is a Mercedes divide: I'd like to have one; I can't afford one.
Michael Powell (Chairman of the U.S. FCC under George W. Bush)

I think that kind of pompous, arrogant, misguided, short-sighted thinking has no place in a modern, contemporary Canada where we want to ensure that every single citizen has an opportunity to achieve his or her full potential and everybody has a chance to get on-line.
Brian Tobin (Industry Minister Canada, 26 June 2001)

All the elaborate mechanisms of communication we have devised have not ennobled, nor brought closer, individual men to men. The means exist. It is Faustus who remains a man.
Loren Eiseley
