Alaska — The Most Connected State?
from the Wiring-the-Populous dept
In percentage terms, true; in gross numbers of connected users, not the case (obviously). This and other fine nuggets about the “digital divide” between the wired and the unwired can be found at the Department of Commerce website. A decent executive summary at News.com. Elevator-version: Connectedness varies by ethnic group, and then varies with income within that ethnic group. At 75k+ in household income about 1/3 of households are connected regardless of ethnicity. After I digest all 300+ graphs, regressions, etc. in the 125 pages, perhaps I’ll re-blurb this.

When geography and climate makes actually going places difficult, people turn to telecommunications to stay connected.
The same thing is true of parts of Scandanavia, I’m told.
