Rethinking the Digital Divide.
Light, Jennifer S.
Harvard Educational Review, v71 n4 p709-33 Win 2001
Compares the digital divide debate to debates over access to cable in the 1960s-1970s and demonstrates how access to technology is constructed as a social problem. Concludes that the current debate is different because it accepts the premise of technological determinism and assumes that closing the gap will mitigate broader social inequities.
