Joe Clark on Barriers to Success in the Computer World

Joe Clark, in a comment on Anil Dash’s weblog:

I am waiting for someone to disprove my contention that the barriers to success in information technology are poverty (can’t afford a computer) and disability (cannot use it), not sex. The computer does not have an opinion about whether or not you “are wanted”; women have no barriers in using computers for their own purposes.

Interesting to think of poverty as an accessibility problem.
