Hey everyone,

We are really looking forward to our second Twitter chat tomorrow night – Wednesday – from 8:30PM (NZ) and 6:30PM (AEST). The topic of this chat is: “Have smartphones bridged the digital divide?”

So please read this provocative article “Smartphones have bridged the digital divide” and then join us with discussing the following questions (Don’t forget the #anz23mthings hashtag!):

  • Q1. Are smartphones cheap enough to bridge the income divide or adequate as a PC substitute? #anz23mthings

  • Q2. What do you think the digital divide is? #anz23mthings

  • Q3. Do you think there is a digital divide in Australia or NZ?  If so who is affected and how can libraries help combat this? #anz23mthings

  • Q4. Does having a smartphone mean that you have bridged the digital (device) divide or is it more than that? #anz23mthings

  • Q5. Anything else? #anz23mthings

We are really looking forward to hearing your ideas! Don’t worry if you can’t make the chat; we will archive it afterwards and put it on the blog.
Chat with you tomorrow!
