Being and connectedness.

I often read that desktop applications are dead; that web applications are all that people want to use.

That may be wonderful if you are connected to the net 24 hours a day. But back in the real world that just isn’t the case. I’m visiting my parents and my inlaws over the holidays and they have nothing but dialup connections. Believe me, in that situation desktop applications are your friend.

Maybe one day we’ll all be connected all the time wherever we go, but until then it might be a good idea to keep in mind that we don’t all live in such a rarefied atmosphere.

There still is a very real digital divide.
