David Wilcox writes about “the technology trap – believing new stuff can fix old problems”.
As he says, “I’m not claiming this offers any great new insight, but it’s always interesting when something developed in one situation fits another… or perhaps something deliberately made simple for unsophisticated users has value more generally”.
I’ve often posted about needs-driven digital divide bridging and this is what the article David is commenting is all about.
My highlights are quite simple (and redundant):
- Commitment to the vision
- Action towards the vision
If you need to cite this article in a formal way (i.e. for bibliographical purposes) I dare suggest:
