Digital Divide - Words of Wisdom!
Jan 30, 2002

Check this out!

"This is a special moment in the world's potential for transition to a truly democratic information age ...If we cannot ensure that this global revolution creates a worlwide information society in which everyone has a stake and can play a part, then it will not have been a revolution at all". (President Nelson Mendela's declaration in a speech to TELECOM '95)

Insperational words, from a wise man! Anyone have any thoughts on this? Better yet, do you have any more words of wisdom pertaining to equality and the information age? Let's inspire people the share knowledge, and share it ourselves! (Any way we can.)

MLK on Time
Jan 30, 2002

Here's an applicable quote from MLK. While not specifically on the internet, I think it reminds us that it is important to act no matter what "special age" we may live in:

"We must come to see that human progress never rolls in on wheels of inevitability. It comes through the tireless efforts and persistent work of men willing to be co-workers with God, and without this hard work time itself becomes an ally of the forces of social stagnation. We must use time creatively, and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right."
