"The "digital divide": In future there will be a widening gap between those with skills in new technological age and "not so well off", those "poor souls", who have not put in effort to update their computer and technological skills. It is a matter of using our resources wisely in this "digital age."
Here in NZ I believe, we need to be driven far more by knowledge, technology, innovation and renovation. The first step is transforming innovative spirit that allows we "Kiwis" (New Zealanders) to turn no.8 wire into innumerable useful tools around farm, into a commercial operation. It's simply a matter of "sharpening pencil" of New Zealand's focus on e-commerce. Refocussing existing economies and enhancing existing products (traditional, such as agriculture and horticulture) through adding value via world wide web.
USE Information Technology with all amazing powers of world wide web . With web and e-mail, we must always keep technology in perspective - by using it for 'ease of communication at click of a mouse', to make our lives easier and market products and services around globe efficiently and cheaply in early days of this "New Age of Wisdom"!
Businesses MUST "get with times" and respond by embracing enormous international opportunities offered by Internet. It's either ADAPT or DIE ("a slow lingering death"). Make technology WORK FOR YOU -: for your (and your family's good, your business and especially your country.
"The spiritual is stronger than any material force, thoughts rule world." - great and inspirational American philosopher, Ralph Waldo Emerson -
