Should all public housing come with cheap broadband internet access?

ScobleizerTV ( by Robert Scoble) has released a very interesting video interview with David Kralik, Newt Gingrich's internet strategist on egovernment improvement in the US.

It discusses areas such as,
  • the provision of cheap broadband access in public housing to help reduce the digital divide and provide lower income people with an economic window
  • the practical difficulties in introducing laptops into schools due to the poor ratio in education of IT workers to computers and the limited PC skills of teachers, and
  • government transparency via internet tools,

It's very thought provoking, if a little grainy.
