Shady and I have similar comments. We both agree that we like the way that the author portrayed ideas through his life experiences, and by showing the historical background as well. The author also uses clearly data and feeling to support his point of view. The stories he told and used in the essay where fun and interesting, also reflects the school life he has.
By reading “Global Digital Divide” I realize that learning should not be a painful process. People should have a desire for knowledge, and science and technology, scientific curiosity. This can get more knowledge to enrich themselves. The exam depends in part on how much you have learned about the subject, not on the absolute. But learning is necessary, and it takes a lifetime to practice.
