Great Quote

As I am examining Information Poverty or Information Equality more, I came across this great quote:

“This gap between those with computer and Internet access and those without it was labeled the digital divide. This divide was thought to be binary: one was either an ICT have or a have not, and not having digital access was thought to limit an individual’s ability to fully participate in a democratic society” (Thompson, 2006, p.20).
Now I believe that information poverty extends beyond just the digital divide, but I do agree that without full and proper information, a citizen cannot fully participate in a democratic society.
