MUST SEE!!! CHECK THE KANSAS CITY DIGITAL INCLUSION FUND!!!



Take a look at the latest and greatest effort to cross the Digital Divide in Kansas City . . . Other than mobile phones and inexpensive tablets, of course.

Check a recent clip from KANSAS CITY DIGITAL INCLUSION FUND

It's a nice bit of rhetoric that makes the tech gap in this town seem so much worse than so many Southeast Asian farmers who are solving their tech deficiencies with a smartphone.

Deets . . .

The Kansas City Digital Inclusion Fund

1 in 5 Kansas Citians are not using the Internet.

The Kansas City Digital Inclusion Fund aims to help close the digital divide by providing $1 million in grants for nonprofits that are helping to get Kansas City residents online and giving them the skills they need to take full advantage of the Internet's benefits for education, job hunting, health information and more.

Grant applications are due before 5 p.m. CST on September 27. More information: KANSAS CITY DIGITAL INCLUSION FUND

The Kansas City Digital Inclusion Fund's founding supporters include Google Fiber, Sprint Foundation, The Illig Family Foundation, Polsinelli, Global Prairie and JE Dunn.

The Kansas City Digital Inclusion Fund is administered by the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation.

The digital divide? Is that where the poor and homeless get everything for free, and the taxpayer has to pay for it?

Internet (broadband) cost 19.95 a month 12 years ago.

Now your paying $50 a month and up for crap that's about as reliable and dependable as dial up and about as fast sometimes.

More hand outs and plenty of money to do it. But Obamacare is still a nightmare that is coming true

Christ the only thing more annoying than rich people complaining about handouts is dumb white people who think they'll be rich one day complaining about handouts. A million dollars is a tiny amount of money, shithead.
