Free Computers!

I've sat on this post for a long while, too. (I've been going through my article bookmarks from the top down to try to salvage things that aren't entirely outdated for blog posts.) This is generally what I think of when people talk about how digital will completely replace print and I get all uppity about not every household in North America, much less the entire world, having access to computers.

But what about computers that are donated? Sadly, sometimes they are used for metal salvage instead of all that educational stuff. Which is not to say computers shouldn't be donated, but rather illustrate that the world is not ready to go entirely digital yet.
