About 20 years ago there was much hand-wringing and worrying about the "digital divide'.
The idea that lots of poorer people don't have access to computers and the Internet and are therefore left out of the new economy.
Well, now even the bum under the bridge has a pocket computer, but there's a new digital divide.
Those with technical skills will be able to maintain much higher levels of privacy and autonomy online then those who don't.
@jcbrand and the state, which was back then working to increase access, is now working to censor.
