What is your vision for bridging the digital divide in Detroit?
My vision for bridging the digital divide in Detroit is listening and learning. Access to high-speed internet and a tablet is not enough. To bridge the digital divide we need to learn where Detroiters are in the digital divide, and ask them where they want to go.
