[ih] 12 Streams #8- Partnership for Progress on the Digital Divide 25th Anniversary

Just as 2019 marked 50 years since the first message crossed the APRPANET,
it also marked 25 years since the realization that the Internet and its
associated technologies were now so vital that they needed to be
ubiquitous. It was Larry Irving, then leading the NTIA, who coined the term
'Digital Divide', and Laura Breeden who led the staff effort to ameliorate
it. Our stream today kicks off with Lee Rainie providing facts and figures,
and includes Vint Cerf, who needs no introduction, but marked the occasion
by sporting a 1994 Internet Society pin.
