Though it is still in its infantile stage, the internet truly is what South African artist Wilhem Boshoff calls the ultimate 'tree of knowledge' - and the infamous 'second coming'. It is both a beginning and an end. While I fully realize that computer use is NOT accessible everywhere, I agree with Olu Oguibe, that it will be.


I wonder why there is any discussion about the importance of the internet, relating it to the fact that not everyone has it. Would any one on this forum please tell me, what if anything is something that EVERYONE has? With that sort of arguments based on wide spread availability, we might end questioning FOOD, given that not everyone has it, and when they do, there is no equal access to it either.


All best
