second class digizens

I helped Andrea find some song lyrics today while we were out today. It was nice that with my iPhone I was able to do that.

It's interesting that it wasn't anything innately about me that made this possible, it was the gear I had with me. Which made me realize that Andrea was a second class digizens because she doesn't have the right gear.

Of course there are plenty of other reasons that other people might not have been able to do that, they may not have the knowledge of how to use the Internet, they might not be interested in using technology like that. Perhaps thinking in the terms of second class digizens isn't so helpful?
