At the G-8 Summit in Okinawa today, leaders of the richest industrialized nations pledged to close the "digital divide" - the gap in access to technology between developed and developing countries. Demonstrators criticized the assembly for not acting more aggresively to provide debt relief for poor nations. President Clinton also spoke to U-S Marines stationed on the island. From Okinawa, NPR's Eric Weiner speaks with host David Wright about the President's message and what the G-8 meeting has accomplished.
