For Tai, the internet has always been there, and it's hard to imagine life without it. It seems almost like it's everywhere, all at once, like magical little clouds filled with information above us. But he learns there's a very real, physical system that allows him to send memes to friends or submit his homework. And more importantly, not everyone has equal access to it.
In this episode Tai talks to:
- Nicole Starosielski, Associate Professor of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University
- Janice Gates, Director of the Equitable Internet Initiative by the Detroit Community Technology Project.
