Digital Natives … in the making?

with one comment

Whatever happened to the ‘US $100 computer project’? Indeed, we need to do more to put computers within the access of ‘digital natives’. Just look at how they enjoy conquering the computer!

Some innovations had to wait to be implemented till economic and social circumstances were favourable for example the smelting of iron with coal was probably discovered in 1620 but it was only a century later that it was put to successful use. Inevitably the push for rapid growth on such a narrow base took the form of enclaves catering to export or the elite the software and BPO industries the SEZs and infrastructure projects fenced off from the requirements of the rest of economy.
