"I certainly never write a review about a book I don't think worth reviewing, a flat-out bad book, unless it's an enormously fashionable bad book." --

***Reaching Across the Digital Divide: An Interview With Laurel Evelyn Dyson
In modern societies, people are used to being bombarded with information technology everywhere they go. Technologies once thought impossible are now considered essential.

Many societies have accepted information technology as the way the world is going.
However, some cultures, especially those regarded as Indigenous, have other reasons
for resisting or accepting information technology. Indigenous people are cultural
groups who have lived in a particular area before colonization and have maintained
their culture and language.
