Barriers to Entry

Barriers to entry in the new media 'verse:

- Inability to type
- Inability to use a camera (video cam)
- Lack of access to technology

though, on that last one, I was quite happily surprised today when my daughter told me that all the kids in her theater class of about 40 kids ages 10-11, many of whom seem to be poverty level (it's a full scholarship program), have Internet access at home. Teacher assigned them all to watch tap dancing videos on YouTube. They all are able, daughter said.
