I thought some of you might be interested in this series of articles that ran in the Washington Post in December of '03. They are about a former classmate of mine at Randolph-Macon Woman's College, Kakenya Ntaiya. She graduated in 2004, and is the first woman from her region to earn a degree. Talk about digital divides -- Kakenya had never seen, much less used, a computer until she came to the US for college.
