What's that?

The Digital Divide has been defined in a variety of ways. We can read a simple explanation from Wikipedia: "The digital divide is the gap between those with regular, effective access to digital technologies and those without." Torero and von Braun quote UNDP Human Development Report 2001, adding: "The digital divide is a reflection of broader socioeconomical inequalities" (p 125).
