Il Babbo cari e Mom, La scoperta di oro me ha
portato a California con l'altro prospectors. Siamo
armed col pickaxes e con le pale. Gli altri scavano
la terra con i coltelli, i cucchiai, e niente a setaccia
fuori il nuggets di oro. Dovrei essere ricco dal
tempo lei prende questa lettera da Esprimere di
Pony. Lo manderò a chiamare poi. Suo ama il Figlio,
Butch

Dear Dad and Mom,
The discovery of gold has brought me to California with other
prospectors. We are armed with pickaxes and shovels. Others are
digging the dirt with knives, spoons, and anything to sift out nuggets of gold.
I should be rich by the time you get this letter by Pony Express.
I will send for you then.
Your loving son,
Butch

SECTION THREE:
What do you think?
You can do it!
There are public computers to use!
• Libraries
• Schools / colleges
• Internet cafes
• Community tech labs
• Online classes
• Social services agencies
• Neighborhood Service Centers
It’s important
because…
Communities deprived of
computer technology will end up
in poverty
People who are not connected
could be left out of
conversations...jobs, even
education
Most new US jobs will require
advanced technological skills
