For the Austin Chronicle, Belinda Acosta writes, “Walking through the Convention Center during the South by Southwest Interactive Festival in years past, it didn’t take a demographer to note that the crowd was predominantly white, male, and 30-ish. Not that that’s surprising. Internet and computer access largely depend on means, knowledge, and information. But if it’s called the World Wide Web, one has to wonder if that world is really that worldly or wide and how broadly that Web is cast and to whom.”
