FROM DEREK BAIRD I read, "The Digital Divide" has vexed and worried researchers for at least a decade, raising concerns that entire groups of Americans might be left behind, unable to afford the gadgets of the 21st Century." But then he cites evidence that the social network divide is more dramatic. I see this divide as clear as day because I teach creatives ranging from 19 to 58 years in age. There are clear and unequivocal reasons to embrace the comfort of the cellphone Amish. Derek cites "new evidence from a survey conducted exclusively for msnbc.com suggests that divide is becoming a pitched battle, with simmering frustrations between pro- and anti-social network crowds over an issue that is central to the digital age and the future of social networks: Privacy."
