Re: Edron, er, Edison in NY Times



Kathy: you wrote: "And don't dismiss the offer of a computer as you
all sit wired together in your offices. Just where would you be without
a computer? The lack of access to the internet is a huge equity issue.

But the fact that you give someone an internet ready computer does not
mean they have access to the Internet. First they need a phone line or
some other connection. Second, they access to an ISP (which usually
costs something). In the literature I have seen, Edison provides
neither one. Thus the mere presence of a computer has not necessarilya
ddressed the issue about which you wrote.
