DIGITAL DIVIDE CORPS
“The future is already here. It's just not evenly distributed.” William Gibson
In 1996 the term "Information Highway" popped into my existence. The stock market hadn't broken 10,000, but it was climbing. Y2K was coming. We would survive, but didn't know it yet. The 90's were coming to an end and I had an impending sense of doom. The Information Highway was coming, WAS HERE, and I didn't know how to turn on a computer.
I knew 2 things: That highways are built to pass over people...quickly and that I was missing out. I was stuck as a retail shop manager with very little hope for more.
Thanks to a program in Delaware sponsored by Joe Biden & in conjunction with Computer Aid Inc. I was selected for a 6-week MS Office training course that would change my life. I quickly went from stocking shelves to owning stock in my own company. This group is my "give back" to my community, my form of ministry to God thru science, my Bakari ("fulfilling of the noble promise” ) to find ways to provide a foot in the digital door for anyone willing to enter.
