This is a telling article: even I under-estimate the digital divide. The best part of it is the positive impression the author has of the students of today.

I decided to go back to the place I was a teenager in the days before cellphones and e-mail:the Ratsgymnasium in Osnabrück, an average school in an average town in northwest Germany. For three days in April I embedded in the everyday lives of 13- to-19-year-olds, hanging out in and after class, watching them interact and interviewing the adults in their lives.
