Digital Dead End


Technology has always promised to fix everything – if only everyone can have it and learn to use it. Writer and teacher Virginia Eubanks set out to achieve this utopia of equality and transparency by organizing high tech access and training programs for low-income women – only to find that everything she thought she knew about the information working class is wrong. Eubanks will give a talk at the Monroe County Public Library on Saturday, November 3rd, around her new book, “Digital Dead End: Fighting for Social Justice in the Information Age.”WFHB correspondent Shayne Laughter talks with Virginia Eubanks about the magical thinking that drives assumptions about class, progress and technology, in a WFHB feature exclusive.
