37% rural youth sans Internet access: Study
The World Wide Web marked its 25th anniversary on March 11, an important milestone when we consider how technology has impacted our lives and how it will shape our future.
How fast the world has changed. According to Pew Research, 42% of adults in the US had never heard of the internet in 1995, and an additional 21% were vague on the concept.
Compare that to now. The International Telecommunication Union recently observedthat three billion people will be online by the end of 2014. This year alone, more people joined the internet than the entire population of the United States.
