In 2008, I worked with a small team of volunteers to launch the nonprofit Community Technology Network
, whose mission is to transform lives through digital literacy. I had recently moved from New York City, where I co-managed 27 computer centers that served thousands of people monthly. It was through this work that I first heard the term digital divide
and saw firsthand how people were being affected by their lack of access to the Internet, and more importantly, their lack of technological skills.
