It's just not a matter of lack of skills and experience with technology, that keep sectors of society on the digital poverty spiral. Learning disabilities, issues of numeracy, literacy, religious values, family dynamics and neighbourhood communties all play their part.

Hi Lynne - absolutely.  There are many mitigating factors when it comes be being digitally excluded.  But this leads to the same spiral where it becomes more and more difficult to break out of without external help.
