Virginia Eubanks, author of Digital Dead End: Fighting for Social Justice in the Information Age, describes her realization that the concept of the digital divide, and the solutions that came out of the movement created to counter it, was based on faulty assumptions. As a result, her book is based on doing research with people instead of on them.

Virginia Eubanks joined the Women's Studies department at SUNY-Albany in 2004 after completing her Ph.D. in Science and Technology Studies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Her research on technology, poverty and women's citizenship developed through a history of activism in the community media and technology center movements. She earned her B.A. in American Literary Culture at the University of California, Santa Cruz (1994) and her M.S. in Rhetoric and Communication at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (1999).
