Abstract

Certainly one of the most fundamental and significant worldwide challenges to communication across the life span in the digital age is the digital divide. For more than 20 years now since the recognition of the digital divide through social scientific research in 1994, large percentages of the populations of countries around the world have been disconnected from the most important technological advancement in communication in a generation and the myriad opportunities it facilitates, thus setting the life paths of those excluded on a course divergent from the trajectory of mainstream civilization.
