In the beginning, the purpose of the Internet was dispersing information to the largest amount of people. Today, the Internet has become an everyday tool for communication, work, and play. A large portion of society is being left behind due to age, disabilities, and limitations of available technology. It's in our best interest to find a way to bridge that gap.
